Warner Pacific College’s Adult Degree Program is a non-term program, making it possible to apply and enroll in programs throughout the year, including the summer months. Credits are awarded as semester credits.



Credit will be awarded for college-level learning that has occurred outside the classroom. This can be verified in 3 ways: 1) successful completion of proficiency examinations, 2) submission of professional certification obtained through non-college instruction, and 3) writing papers documenting learning that has occurred outside the college classroom.


Warner Pacific accepts the AAOT as meeting their general education courses except for Religion and upper division Humanities courses.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
