Finish What You Started

Completing Your Degree at the School of Continuing Studies

You already started.
Now it's time you finish.

At University's College's School of Professional and Continuing Studies, part and fulltime adult learners have the opportunity to enroll in contextualized programs that honor their personal and professional experiences. We know coming back to school isn't easy, no matter how necessary it might be, but we work with you to make the transition smooth and make sure you have the support system you need to make it to the finish. 

We understand the financial strain going back to school can take on you and your family, so we work with students to ensure they or their families aren't blocked from an education for reasons of preparation, affordability, or time constraints. Through our Prior Learning Assessment you can earn up to 90 credits for courses you've already taken or experiences you've already had.

The School of Professional and Continuing Studies offers hyper-flexible programs focused on degree completers, career changers and adult students looking to start or continue their education. Our learners and communities are supported with pathways, programs, supports, and services that meet their educational needs.

Our affordable programs range from professional certificates to bachelor’s and graduate degrees. Whatever degree you earn, our programs are tailored to help you to meet industry demands in high-growth fields. If your program is no longer available we will work with you to match your skills with the program that fits the career you have or are looking for.
