Peirce and SEPTA Are Corporate Partners

What does a school that's built specifically to serve working adult learners look like? It looks like Peirce College, Philadelphia's school for adult learners since 1865. As a nontraditional student, your higher education needs are a bit different than your average 18-year-old's, and the supportive, flexible, career-oriented education you'll get at Peirce is designed to meet those needs.

Courses start every two months at Peirce, so you can enroll and begin learning any time of year. And once you start, you can complete courses and move on to your next batch in just two months, giving you the flexibility you need to learn at your own pace. Speaking of flexibility, Peirce also allows you to take your courses online or on campus. What's more, you can even switch between online and classroom learning any week you want to, as many weeks as you need to.

No matter how you choose to take your courses at Peirce, you'll benefit from our supportive staff and faculty, who are here to encourage your journey through higher education and support your path to completing your degree. That path includes learning market-relevant skills and knowledge, the kind that will help you accomplish your goal: to improve your career outlook.
