About Us

Our story starts with our students.

Behind every degree, there is a unique and powerful person who dared to dream bigger, reach farther, and create a better future. Our students inspire us, and we want to inspire them. That’s why we’re a nonprofit, open access university specifically designed to help you build on your passions and achieve your goals.

You have big dreams — we help make them possible.

We offer a quick and easy transfer experience, robust financial aid and scholarship packages, work-study opportunities, and more.
