Undergraduate Prospective Students

College of Professional Studies (formerly University College)

In order to reflect Creighton University's more contemporary approach to providing education for adult students, the name of University College has been changed to the College of Professional Studies (CPS).

Since 1983, the college has been offering a full-service educational experience for adult students, 23 years of age and older, who are pursuing undergraduate studies at Creighton. With new initiatives underway, including Creighton's online Bachelor of Science in Leadership, the name change more effectively communicates Creighton's dedication to our adult student's needs. 

We offer full or part-time schedules, day and evening courses, accelerated and full semester classes, online and on-campus. Whether you're planning to pursue a degree program or taking classes for fun, our advisors are here to help!

Let us assist you in applying to Creighton. We can answer your questions about financial aid, scholarships, the admission process, course registration and evaluate your college transcripts. With the College of Professional Studies, YES! YOU CAN become a part of Creighton University.

Evening Programs: The AcceleratedCREIGHTON program is ideal for adults with availability in the evenings. Classes meet one night a week for 8 weeks, which enables you to attend full-time in a semester by taking two classes at a time. We offer a wide selection of full-semester evening courses for students interested in our other degree programs or who enjoy a more comfortable pace. Our advisors can help design a schedule that fits your life.

Online Programs: The online Bachelor of Science in Leadership offers tracks in Healthcare Management, Non-profit Management and Human Capital Management. Successful businesses and organizations require educated leaders to provide creative vision, facilitate collaboration, make ethical decisions, and inspire others. This flexible, affordable, and relevant degree is specifically designed for adults looking to gain a promotion, change careers, stay competitive or expand their education.

Day Programs: College of Professional Studies students interested in completing a degree mostly during the day may choose from a wide range of Traditional Degrees and Majors. You may be interested in pursuing one of our Undergraduate Certificates.  Our certificates are the perfect solution for you if you are just getting started on your educational journey or if you already have an undergraduate degree.

Non-Degree Programs: Non-degree CPS students are not pursuing degrees and enroll in undergraduate courses to strengthen a particular area of study or for personal interest. There is no application fee and students are not typically required to submit prior transcripts. Non-degree seeking students are not eligible for financial aid. If you are not in good standing with your prior institution or have been academically dismissed within the last year, please contact the College of Professional Studies Dean's Office to discuss your individual case.
