It is not too late to get admitted and registered for Samford University's adult degree program fall terms. The program offers fully accredited undergraduate degrees and certificate programs for first time and transfer students.

Terms last a period of nine weeks. Full-time students must register for both terms. Fall A term classes meet from Aug. 6 through Oct. 5, and Fall B term classes meet from Oct. 10 through Dec. 11.

"Applicants should reserve at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the term for the admissions process and for Samford to receive transcripts and reference letters. Additional time is required for financial aid processing," Metro Programs Executive Director Dr. Cindy F. Kirk said. Applications for the program are located on-line at

Classes will be offered in the areas of administration and business, counseling foundations and family studies, fine arts, geographical information systems, humanities, natural and computational sciences and mathematics, paralegal studies, physical education, social sciences and world languages.

"The program's shorter nine-week terms are convenient, and all classes are offered in the evenings or on weekends to accommodate working adults," Kirk said. The mission of the Adult Degree Program is to provide opportunities for professional and personal growth over the lifespan through rigorous academic programs and relationships in a Christian community.
