Why Peirce?

Peirce College offers you convenience and flexibility whether you study on campus or online. You can even mix and match your courses, whatever works best for you.


Peirce College enjoys the accreditation and approval of several agencies.


Our 3 credit courses are 7 or 8 weeks in length, allowing you to attend school part-time and complete your AS degree in as little as 18 months, your BS degree in an additional 18 months, or your MS degree in 24 months.


Peirce College offers a low, private school tuition rate. Over 70% of our students receive generous financial aid packages including grants and scholarships.


We know how busy you are. At Peirce College, you can choose between on campus, online, or on site courses. All courses include a companion website to assist you with test-taking, assignments, and communication between students and faculty.


"Peirce means business" has been our credo since 1865, when the school was founded to provide educational opportunities to Civil War veterans transitioning to the civilian workforce. Located in historic Center City, Philadelphia, Peirce College has been home to day, evening, and weekend students for over 148 years. Not all students need to come to campus, but we do hope you'll visit.


You and your Academic Advisor will develop a close relationship from your first inquiry at Peirce College. Your Academic Advisor will guide you through the application and financial aid processes, planning your academic schedule, registering for classes, and, finally, planning for graduation.


Earn a degree in Business, Healthcare, IT, or Paralegal Studies. Choose from concentrations in Accounting, Business Law, Marketing, Management, Application Development and Programming, Desktop Applications for Business, Network Security, Networking, Technology Management, and Paralegal Studies.
