Bridge Associate

Why do we call it Bridge? It bridges the gap between our Gateway Certificate program and our longer Excel Baccalaureate program. Bridge results in an Associate of Arts Degree in Biblical Studies. Students may transfer some credit hours from other colleges. All courses in the Bridge Associate program may be transferred into the Excel Baccalaureate program.


These degrees can be completed in 24 months or less, depending on the number of transfer credits from other colleges. After completing the associate degree, students have the option of entering the EXCEL Program to complete their bachelor's degree.

To earn a Bridge Associate Degree, the student can take courses in the following formats:

• Online courses
• Intensives
• External study courses
• Traditional day courses
• Credits acquired from another college
