About College of Adult & Professional Studies

The College of Adult & Professional Studies at Bethel University ( helps busy adults achieve their educational goals by offering courses taught within a framework of Christian values. The adult program offers seven career-relevant bachelor’s degree-completion programs, including business management, Christian ministries, communication studies, healthcare leadership, human services, nursing (RN to B.S.), and organizational leadership. The General Studies program allows students with few or no credits to take the courses they need to enter a bachelor’s degree program or to earn an associate’s degree. All programs are taught on an accelerated schedule, with courses meeting evenings or weekends at convenient locations in the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, or online.

Students who are enrolled in a degree program with Bethel University’s College of Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS) can earn 3-4 transfer credit hours per course for Saylor Direct courses.

Because different degrees have different graduation requirements, students should consult with a Bethel Admissions Counselor or Academic Advisor for specific information on how Saylor Academy courses can be counted.

Please note that Bethel University students can transfer a maximum of 30 hours of credit.
