"Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world." John 16:33

Bethel University adult undergraduate, seminary, and graduate programs focus on adult students and their specific goals and needs, including parenting while completing a degree. Parenting is hard work. Completing a college degree is hard work. Both require persistence and support networks as much as intelligence and money. But when trying to successfully parent and complete a degree, especially as a single parent, it can appear to be insurmountable.

To this end, Bethel offers opportunities designed for single parents to form relationships with other single parents; to form relationships with faculty; to attend short, presentations/discussions on Bethel, state, and federal resources; and encouragement to grow spiritually.

Our Mission

To design support systems enabling single parents to successfully complete their degree.

Our Vision

To help single parents succeed by offering opportunities designed for them to form relationships with other single parents; to form relationships with faculty and staff; and to grow spiritually.
