College of Continuing Studies
The College of Continuing Studies [CCS] recognizes that learning is a life long process and that part-time students need flexible learning opportunities. Students enroll in the College of Continuing Studies for a variety of reasons: to earn a degree, to develop their professional skills, learn more about our complex society, expand their personal lives, earn a certification, prepare for graduate study or prepare for a career change. Students participating in CCS programs have diverse backgrounds and educational goals. Many enroll with high school backgrounds, while others bring college credits, undergraduate degrees or even graduate degrees. CCS students may take courses during the day, evening, and online.
Students pursuing a degree program may also have the opportunity to earn credits by nontraditional means, such as College Level Examination [CLEP], Advanced Placement, the American Council on Education, DSST, formal military credits, validation or assessment of a specific course or Prior Learning Assessment [PLA] based on demonstrated learning acquired through life and work experience.
Prospective students are welcome to make an appointment with a CCS academic advisor to discuss program goals and have a transcript credit evaluation. Enrolled students may contact CCS at 609-896-5033 with any questions.
