Whether you are completing your bachelor's degree, adding a teaching license or fulfilling dietetic internship requirements, we understand what it means to be a non-traditional student. We are here to support you - and to challenge you - every step of the way.

Bachelor's Degree completion programs
With classes designed specifically for working adults, Bluffton offers bachelor's degree-completion programs in organizational management, also known as BCOMP (Bluffton Cohort-based Organizational Management Program), health care management and social workStudents often choose these programs because of their one-night-a-week convenience factor. BCOMP and HCM classes are offered in Bluffton, Piqua and Archbold; and BCOMP is available in an online blended format.

Online/in-class blended business courses

Bluffton's online blended BCOMP program provides the same curriculum leading to a degree in organizational management as our well-known classroom program, but is offered in a way that combines the flexibility of online learning with face-to-face learning.

RN to BSN program

Bluffton's new RN to BSN program is designed for students who have completed their two-year RN degree and want to earn a bachelor's of science in nursing and advance their careers. Classes will start in the fall of 2016.
