As more turn to online classes, Creighton University ends evening program with low enrollment - Rick Ruggles, World-Herald

Creighton University has terminated a once-popular evening program for adults returning to school to obtain bachelor’s degrees in certain fields of study. Tracy Chapman, an associate dean at Creighton, said online courses have boomed while enrollment in the evening program, called AcceleratedCreighton, has dwindled. “The numbers were steadily decreasing,” she said. Creighton offered bachelor’s degrees in three major areas: creative writing, communication, and health administration and policy. Students took those classes on campus. Creighton administrators discontinued the program two or three weeks ago, she said. About 25 students were in the program, she said. Their academic advisers will work with them so that they can finish. Students who can’t attend class during the day will be offered options such as online courses or independent study.
