Welcome to the School of Professional and Continuing Studies at Springfield College. We are committed to offering relevant, affordable programs that enable working, non-traditional students to advance their careers and achieve their academic goals while balancing work and family. Springfield College is an accredited, nonprofit institution, with a core mission dedicated to educating students for leadership in service to others since 1885.

Face-to-face weekend and online courses allow you to fit full-time enrollment into your busy life. You will have the opportunity to earn credit for prior college-level learning that you have gained through work or volunteer activities. Plus, our open transfer policy means that credits from a regionally accredited college will allow you to graduate with a BS degree in as little as 16 months, or 12 months in our MBA program.

Our dedicated faculty and staff are passionate about ensuring the success of all students, and they understand the challenges working adults face when returning to school. The faculty value the knowledge and experience that our students bring to the classroom and build upon that base to create a vibrant and applicable learning environment.

The School of Professional and Continuing Studies has a mission centered on the promotion of social and economic justice, which establishes the foundation for our curriculum and our commitment to strengthening our communities. We take the social and economic justice ethos of the School seriously – namely, to be agents for positive change, locally and globally - and we work hard to actualize Springfield College’s mission to nurture the spirit, mind, and body of all of our students in service to humanity.

Best of luck on your journey!
