School for Professional Advancement

Regis College's School for Professional Advancement offers a values-centered Jesuit education specifically designed for the adult learner. Our students are working professionals, parents and spouses seeking their bachelor's or master's degree from an accredited University that respects the balance between work, school and family. We are proud of our reputation as a national leader in adult education, offering innovative online learning, multiple campus locations, nationally-recognized curriculum and dedicated, award-winning faculty.


We know that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn't work when it comes to your education. Many of our programs are taught either online or on-campus during the evenings, so you can choose a path that best works your schedule, learning style and life.


Backed by over 130 years of tradition and academic excellence, Regis College's School for Professional Advancement continues to make earning a respected degree accessible and affordable through online program formats and generous financial aid packages.


You're here to get a degree, and we're here to help. Our programs are highly specialized so that you can immediately apply the skills you learn in the classroom to the real working world and start getting a return on your educational investment. Our Experiential Learning opportunities get students out of the classroom to learn in hands-on environments.


The School for Professional Advancement provides transformational learning experiences in the fields of education, liberal arts and the natural and social sciences. Our programs offer rigorous study through a unique integration of Jesuit traditions with theoretical, technological and scientific advances to foster academic, personal and career growth.
