Our degree completion pathway is for anyone who started college somewhere or who has valuable prior learning experiences and skills who want to complete their bachelor’s degree with Farmington.

How can UMF help me?

  • Choose your program: Discuss your goals with an advisor and decide which degree program best meets your needs and interests.
  • Convenient-to-you schedule: Online, hybrid, evening, and/or Saturday classes.
  • Individual attention: Small classes where you’ll know your professors and your professors will know you.
  • Peer connections: Collaborate with motivated classmates who are also finishing their degree.
  • Personalized advising: Academic advisors at UMF who focus on your individual goals and guide you across the finish line.
  • After-hours support: Staff will be on-hand to help you weeknights after 5pm.
  • Affordable tuition: We can help you discover scholarships and assistance you may not know exists.

We provide the support you need to finish your degree.

Whether you’ve been out of college for a few years or two decades, we can help you earn your degree. We’ll work with you to create a manageable, affordable degree plan that:

  • Identifies college-level knowledge you already have—for credit
  • Transfers college credits you’ve earned from previous coursework
  • Fits with your professional goals
  • Pinpoints what you still need to learn

Melissa Parziale left UMF only needing a few credits to graduate. “I was young and was ready to experience life,” said Parziale, “but I loved Farmington and even though I have had some career success, it was the one thing that always nagged at me that I didn’t graduate. I was at a point in my career where I asked myself ‘What’s next?’ Ashley helped me answer that. It was a quick turnaround to go from almost an alumni to a UMF degree holder. I can’t wait to put my diploma up in my office and if anyone asks me I will say it was definitely worth it. It’s never too late!”

Steps in starting to complete your degree

Meet our team

We are specialists in working with adult learners. We offer academic advising and mentoring that prepares you to be successful. Let us help you personalize your program, pace, and structure so that you get to the finish line.

Lori Soucie, Assistant Director of Advising
My work at UMF gives me the opportunity to work with students who are exploring majors, careers, and life choices. My role as an academic advisor is to get to know students and to help them take the next step on their academic journey.
Robbie Hollis, Enrollment and Retention Counselor
My role as a enrollment counselor is to spread awareness about our programs and assist those with the application process.  I also support our students throughout each term to ensure they have the necessary information they need to stay on track. It’s rewarding meeting new faces and helping those move forward with their academic goals.
Kirsten Petroska, Director of Early College Partnerships & Credit for Prior Learning
The work you’ve done and the experiences you have are important and relevant to us. I work with students, faculty, and staff to ensure that students’ prior learning experiences are accounted for and that credit is awarded when appropriate and possible.

Ashley Montgomery, Assistant Dean of Teaching, Learning and Assessment

I love working with adults to complete their bachelors degrees. It started when I learned about a former student who hadn’t finished their degree and I found the experience so validating that I became invested in helping folks like you navigate their way to a degree.
