Adult Education


The Adult Education Program at East Texas Baptist University is designed for non-traditional students who wish to finish their undergraduate degree in a Christ-centered environment with academic integrity.

Our program recognizes that adults will need to balance their educational goals with family, work, and other life events. So, Adult Education students can earn a degree completely online. Some on-campus options are available, as well.

Students may also earn course credit through the development of a portfolio based on learning in prior work experience. These options will help adult students finish a degree in a shorter time frame than most traditional programs.

Tuition Assistance

Students enrolled in the Adult Education Program receive a Life-long Learning Grant equal to 1/3 the amount of tuition. Federal and state aid is also available!
