Online College Degree Programs at Peirce College

Back in the days of dial-up, we were an online pioneer. Since 2000, Peirce College has been giving career-focused adults the option to earn a degree entirely online.

As connection speeds improved, so did our course offerings – today we offer our students a variety of convenient online college degree programs. You can now earn an associate, master’s or bachelor’s degree through Peirce Online® without ever setting foot on our Philadelphia campus*.

Have a specific degree program and/or career path in mind? Peirce offers many career-oriented programs, making us the best option for working adults looking to pursue a degree online that’ll fit into their education needs and career goals. We offer online degrees and certificates in all the same programs we teach on our campus. In fact, you'll take the same courses and learn the same lessons online that you would here in the classroom.

Still not sure if an online degree program is right for you? Here are four reasons why you’ll benefit from our online college degree programs:

  1. Flexibility & Convenience – Access your courses at any time, from anywhere you can get online, and view lectures and class materials at your convenience. Peirce helps you fit your coursework into your busy life.
  2. Direct Interaction – You might not be in a classroom, but you’ll still work directly with your instructor and classmates through threaded online discussions.
  3. Accessibility – Access our extensive online library to conduct research for your classes. You can also easily order and ship your textbooks through our online bookstore.
  4. Online Support – All of our on-campus support services are also available online: advising, tutoring, academic workshops and more. So you’ll get the support you need entirely online through the Peirce Portal at

Aside from taking classes from anyplace outside the traditional classroom with an internet connection, our online students otherwise get an identical college experience to the one our on-campus ones do. No matter what they study – or where they study it from – online degree students at Peirce enjoy the same exemplary instruction as our on-campus students. New accelerated online courses start almost every month, making it easy for you to start earning your degree.

Contact the Admissions Office at 1.888.467.3472, ext. 9000 to get started with a Peirce associate, master's or bachelor's degree online.

*All programs can be completed entirely online except for Paralegal Studies. The American Bar Association requires that Paralegal Studies students complete four entry-level on-campus courses before they can begin taking online classes.
