Why Cambridge College

Learning for a Lifetime

Cambridge College’s mission is to provide access to high quality bachelor’s, advanced degrees and certificate programs to talented and intelligent adults who want to earn the credentials required to advance in their fields, and in their lives. We prepare our graduates to be thoughtful and ethical leaders to meet the challenges of their workplaces and communities. Our flexible, focused degree programs are regionally and professionally accredited and equip our students with the knowledge, training and skills that employers’ desire.

Reasons to Believe

Each year, 5,600 adult learners attend Cambridge College. Starting a degree program at Cambridge College is a real commitment. It isn’t easy, but it’s worth it – and we’re here to help every step of the way. If they can do it, so can you. Here are a few of the challenges that our students face – and a few of the reasons that you should believe you can do it too.

It's Never Too Late

With an average age of 37, Cambridge College specializes in teaching adult learners. A pioneer in adult education, we believe that life experience is an asset – not a liability.  We value the life skills and abilities from outside the classroom that our students bring into the classroom.

Fitting School into Life

We offer evening and weekend classes that run year-round so that you can earn your degree without giving up your life.  We understand that most Cambridge College students balance family, work and community commitments - and so do your classmates.


Cambridge College believes that education is the foundation of the American dream and that no one should be denied access based on economic barriers or societal constraints. We are committed to keeping our tuition low and to providing financial aid to those who qualify.  More than 60% of our student body receives financial aid.

Cambridge College is an affordable option for most students, when compared to other colleges. We believe our tuition costs are a great value for the quality education you receive.
