The length of time it will take a student to complete a degree depends upon (1) the number of credits transferred into the program and (2) the number of credit hours taken each term. To estimate the length of time to complete the program, students may wish to subtract the number of credits they will transfer from the 120 credits required for graduation. The student should then divide the number of credits remaining to be completed by the number of credits s/he may take per semester. The result is a rough estimate of the number of semesters required to complete the program. Students are encouraged to move through the program at a comfortable rate taking into consideration personal and professional obligations as well as educational goals.
To earn a Bachelor’s degree at Antioch University Midwest, students will have a combination of transfer credits and required Antioch University Midwest credits totaling 120 credits.

A majority of AUM students finance their education through some form of financial aid. You may not be sure which federal, state, public and private aid packages – such as loans, scholarships, and grants—are right for you. Our staff is here to help you, so you can focus on what’s most important: beginning your academic program at AUM.
Considering transferring to Antioch University Midwest? Your past work, academic, and life experience matters to us. Our degree completion program was designed to be transfer intentional. You can transfer 90 credits toward your AUM Bachelor’s degree.
We also accept transcripted military training and experience, ACE and CLEP test credits, and credit any hours you’ve earned toward an RN license regardless of the date the credits were earned.
As part of AUM’s ongoing commitment to make college tuition as affordable as possible, we have partnered with Clark State Community College, Sinclair Community College, and Southern State Community College to offer 3+1 agreements which allow students who have finished certain associate’s degrees to seamlessly continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree from AUM.
Antioch University Midwest was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as the number one school based on the percentage of students, age 25 or older, enrolled in undergraduate programs in the 2014-2015 academic year.
The recent announcement on the U.S. News website states: “Not all students set out for college immediately after high school graduation. Some enlist in the military, spend time in the workforce or take time off to travel the world. For those who choose to go to college later in life, having classmates who reflect their age, interests and experiences can help ease the transition from the ‘real world’ to the world of an undergraduate student.”
3+1 Pathways with Clark State Community College
As part of Antioch University Midwest’s (AUM) ongoing commitment to make college tuition as affordable as possible, we have partnered with Clark State Community College (CSCC) to offer a true 3+1 agreement starting in Fall 2016.
The 3+1 agreement will allow CSCC students who have finished certain associate’s degrees to seamlessly continue on to earn a bachelor’s degree from AUM. Through the program, students can transfer 60 credits from CSCC and then divide the final 60 credit hours of their bachelor’s degree between the two institutions.
This partnership (90 total credits being taken at CSCC and 30 at AUM) will save students $11,630 as compared to the traditional 2+2 model where students earn 60 credits in community college and 60 at the university level.
To participate in the 3+1 program students must apply to AUM once they have completed their associate’s degree. Once admitted, students may take the final 60 credits of their degrees simultaneously, with AUM functioning as their home institution and Clark State offering courses through the partnership.
