ALPHA - Evening Students

ALPHA | Adult Learners Program for Higher Achievement

Coker College’s Evening and Extended Studies Program has been renamed ALPHA, Adult Learners Program for High Achievement. With almost 40 years of experience and locations in HartsvilleFlorence, Mullins/Marion, and Cheraw, ALPHA gives adults the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree at night.

“We wanted a name that is more representative of the students and outcomes of Coker’s evening program,” said Dr. Barbara Jackowski, Coker College associate dean. “Our students are adult learners who work hard and aim high. They are earning a college degree to get more out of life, personally and professionally.”

Census Bureau statistics show that a person with a bachelor's degree earns $900,000 more in a lifetime than someone with a high school diploma - and $500,000 more than someone with an Associates Degree. This is one reason more adults than ever before are enrolling in Coker College's evening program -- adults just like you who are juggling family, work (or looking for work), economic realities, and the pressures of everyday life.

Coker's ALPHA Program offers bachelor's degrees in:

  • Business Administration
  • Criminology
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Elementary Education
  • Psychology
  • Sociology
  • Social Work

Coker's ALPHA Program is the affordable, flexible and convenient solution for adults who want to earn a four year degree at night, or just take courses to "brush-up." We have almost 40 years experience in providing education for busy adults.

The benefits of earning a college degree include:

  • Enhanced Job Stability
  • Increased Earning Power
  • Opportunity for Advancement


Each term in Coker's evening program is 8 weeks and a semester is two 8 week terms. Not all sites offer all degrees. See individual site web pages - Hartsville, Florence, Mullins/Marion - for more information.
