We help you succeed!

Our tradition is meeting the unique needs of adult learners like you; students who returned to college after some time away, transferred from a community college or who have decided to try college for the first time. For over 150 years we have focused on offering practical curriculum, because we know a priority for students like you is earning a degree that puts you in demand as a career professional.

We think you deserve a university that also aspires to excellence — excellence we measure by how well you succeed in the classroom, completing your education and being hired in your chosen career. We will keep working each day to better support you.
