In 1865, ​​Peirce College led the charge for providing career-based education for soldiers returning from the Civil War and was one of the country’s first institutions to embrace women as students. 

Today, Peirce continues its tradition of serving the unique needs of working adults and employers through the ongoing evolution of programs that provide students with academic excellence, flexibility, and personalized support.

In addition to online courses, students can earn credit for college-level knowledge gained through years of work, professional and military training, and other experiences. Students can also embed industry-recognized professional certifications into their programs - and earn credit for those certifications. 

Peirce College is constantly looking to reinvent itself as a way forward for adult learners looking to excel in career-based studies. The Peirce College Adult Learners Scholarship will support one student who is interested in attending Peirce College to maximize their potential in a career of their choosing.

All students interested in attending Peirce College, regardless of education level, are eligible to apply.

Those who enroll at Peirce College as new students in the 2021-2022 academic year may also be eligible for Peirce's Believe in Better Scholarship, which awards up to $5,000 for new undergraduate students and up to $1,500 for new graduate students.
