Online Excellence


Gardner-Webb University provides you with a unique and affordable opportunity to complete your bachelor's degree. Eight programs are offered completely online, allowing students flexibility in their education without sacrificing quality. 
In fact, Affordable Colleges Online recently honored GWU as a 2015 Top Online College in North Carolina!



Gardner-Webb partners with six community colleges in NC for our Pathways program, which offers the
opportunity for community college students to transfer credits from their Associate’s degree toward a corresponding Bachelor’s degree offered by the Degree Completion Program.

Additionally, Gardner-Webb University is a participating institution in the North Carolina Community College Articulation Agreement, offering greater transfer opportunities for continuing your education.  Visit our transfer equivalency database to find out more about which courses will transfer to GWU.

The University also participates in the North Carolina RN to BSN Uniform Articulation Agreement, allowing registered nurses who hold an Associate in Nursing degree from a NC Community College to complete a BSN in as little as 1 year by following the NCCC RN-BSN 5 block degree program.

Since 1978, the Degree Completion Program has been offering traditional undergraduate classes at more convenient times and locations for working adults. Evening classes are held at 12 sites across North Carolina and previous work, volunteer, and community experience can be evaluated for potential credit towards your degree – and those are just a few ways the DCP experience is focused on equipping students to succeed.
