Your Degree on Your Time
We realize that the everyday pressures of work and family – not to mention finances – make it unrealistic for most people to drop everything and head back to college. We get it. That's why we offer classes online, in the evening and at off-campus locations. If you want to earn your graduate degree, we want to make sure you have a convenient way to get it.
