How are classes delivered?
Courses are delivered in two main formats:
- Hybrid: Hybrid courses include some coursework that is done online by each student as well as classroom time with the instructor on the Milligan campus or at the Kingsport Center for Higher Education

How long will it take to finish my degree?
The business administration major with concentration in management consists of 48 semester hours. Completing the major usually takes approximately 16 months, depending on how many courses you take at a time. Completion of the degree is dependent upon how many credits will transfer from your previous institutions to help meet the overall 128 required hours to graduate from Milligan.
We offer a free Personalized Degree Plan that reviews your transcripts and past credit to determine exactly what your degree plan will be and how long it will take you. This ultimately saves you time and money by making sure you stay on track to complete your degree without any surprises and as quickly as you can. Email ADCP@milligan.edu to get your process started.
Will my credit from previous colleges/universities transfer? Yes, as long as the courses meet Milligan’s transfer criteria. Only courses with grades of “C-” or better will be accepted for transfer from other regionally accredited institutions. Milligan has transfer agreements with all Tennessee community colleges and many others in the region.
