The School of Continuing Studies is committed to your educational success. We offer part-time opportunities for degree completion, career enhancement and personal enrichment through a variety of degree and certificate programs. We are looking for qualified students to join our unique community of adult learners where you will receive full-time support for part-time educational pursuits.

How to Apply

Undergraduate continuing studies enrollment proceeds in a unique two-step process: admittance and then acceptance. All prospective students, including those not seeking a degree, must file a formal Continuing Studies application. This application differs from the University application to reflect the open admissions policy found in undergraduate Continuing Studies.

Are you looking to take a class without becoming an official SCS student? Fill out the Non-matriculating Application.

Steps for Acceptance in Undergraduate Continuing Studies

  1. Submit an official high school transcript or grade results of G.E.D.
  2. Submit official transcripts of all prior colleges attended, if applicable
  3. Submit official documentation of military training and experience, if applicable

Submit official documentation of CLEP, DSST or other standardized exam results, if applicable.
