Grace College Degree Completion Program Produces Success for Recent Graduate

Dec. 8, 2015

Since 2008, Grace College has offered GOAL (Grace Opportunities for Adult Learners) to adults who wish to complete their undergraduate degree.  GOAL is available both residentially and online for a B.S. in Management or a B.S. in Quality Management. With current technology, outstanding classroom instruction, and a broad range of academic resources, Grace makes completing a bachelor’s degree a reality at a price you can afford.

Practical learning is key to GOAL.  Adult assessment replaces traditional examinations.  Building on previous college credits and life experiences equivalent to about two years of college, the GOAL degree can be completed in just 16 months.

Each residential GOAL class is offered one night per week for five weeks or over two day-long Saturday sessions.  GOAL is also available online for students who wish to complete their degree completely from home.  These convenient scheduling options allow participants to earn a degree while maintaining other full-time responsibilities.

As new GOAL cohorts prepare to begin in January, recent GOAL graduates like Sherri Reneker of Warsaw are celebrating successes from their new Grace College bachelor’s degree.  Last month, Sherri became a GOAL graduate earning her B.S. in Management. Throughout her enrollment in GOAL, Reneker maintained her job at Zimmer Biomet.  Since graduating, Reneker was promoted from Senior Cash Applications Clerk to Cash Application Supervisor, a very gratifying move that she attributes to GOAL.

“I know this career advancement would not have been possible had I not decided to return to school for my degree,” Reneker said. “I will be forever grateful for the Christian-based leadership training I received at Grace.  It is extremely rewarding to put that training into practice in my new position so soon after graduating.”  Reneker calls the GOAL program “a life-changing experience.”

Grace College is currently accepting applications for the residential and online GOAL cohorts to begin in January.  Prospective students can find more information by visiting, by calling 877/607-0012 or by emailing
