NETC Bridge Program Degrees

Bachelor of Science in Business Management
  • Available to NETC business management graduates
Bachelor of Science in Criminology
  • Available to NETC criminal justice graduates

100% Online Degree Options

If you need even more flexibility, Coker offers four undergraduate degrees that are completely online––business management, criminology, psychology, and sociology.

How will this work?

  • Classes will be both online and in-seat at NETC – Each term, students spend one night per week taking an in-person course with Coker faculty in an NETC classroom and a second class taught entirely online.
  • 8-week terms – You’ll complete six (6) credit hours per eight-week term (a full-time schedule for financial aid purposes).
  • You will have support – You’ll be part of a cohort, meaning you’ll be with the same group of students as you work together toward your bachelor’s degree. In addition, you’ll have Coker’s supportive faculty, staff, and resources to help you along the way.  

How long will it take to earn my bachelor’s degree?

If students are able to complete two classes each 8-week term (including a summer term), they could earn their bachelor’s degree in just two years.

Will my NETC credits transfer to Coker?

  • Time management and study skills
  • Use of Blackboard for online classes
  • How to connect with academic support services (writing and math assistance as well as  tutoring in other subjects) and campus resources
  • Career coaching

“Nowadays, to work for a state agency, you have to have a four-year degree. If I want to extend and expand my law enforcement career, I'll need my bachelor's degree to do it….After obtaining my associate's degree, I had the opportunity to jump start my law enforcement career so my education took a back seat. Now that I have a little girl looking up to me, I want to finish up something I started a long time ago...not only for myself, but for my daughter...I have a pretty crazy and hectic schedule, but it's totally worth it!”

Lynsee Carroll, '18 - criminology bridge program student

"I really like the way Coker has the classes set up, with the [terms lasting just] eight weeks...They make it easy for you, especially if you have a full-time job, if you have children, if you have family obligations. They understand that.”

Mary Burnell, '18 - business management bridge program student
