School of Continuing Studies

We're not your traditional adult education program. Dedicated instructors expose you to new ideas and challenge your thinking. Attentive advisors walk with you every step of the way. We're committed to supporting you as you earn your degree, taking into consideration the life and work experience you bring to the classroom. You'll grow in ways you didn't expect and leave feeling equipped for success.
