Degree Completion Programs

Montclair State offers a flexible and rigorous program of study that is consistent with a bachelor’s degree credential for students who have some college and have not completed their degree. This program was created to enhance students’ professional skills, including written and oral communication, analytical skills, multimodal presentation skills, and the capacity to become reflective leaders by providing a path to graduation for students who did not continue their studies nor graduate in the major they originally elected. Montclair State will launch its first degree completion program in Fall 2021.
