Our affordable programs range from professional certificates to bachelor’s and master’s degrees, because employers are looking for a workforce with different levels of skills and competencies.

Courses are offered at our convenient downtown Providence location and online, so they are easy to fit into your schedule.

Every Step Counts

We are committed to lifelong learning and improvement for all types of students no matter where they are on the education journey. Because of that, we think beyond the traditional high school to college to employment experience and offer programs that can easily be taken in steps to get you where you want to go. For example, if you want a bachelor's degree but are only ready to enroll in a certificate program as a foundational step, that's okay.  We will work with you to take you from your first step to the place you want to be.
