Admission to the the College of Professional and Continuing Studies 

You’re rethinking your life. This is a great place to start.

We’re a perfect fit for anyone who likes to consider new directions—and who’s not afraid to experiment while learning as an adult. And while there’s no one type of adult learner, there are a few general characteristics that seem to click here at the College of Professional and Continuing Studies. Our nontraditional students in college are highly motivated and like a clear plan with a strong support system. They’re good with feedback and want to grow, both personally and professionally. Finally, they’re smart, and by that we mean savvy. They know quality when they see it, and they want the most out of every investment. That’s why they’re here.

If this sounds like you, then we invite you to join us. To learn more about our nontraditional degree program admissions or classes contact our Office of University Admissions.
