We know education.
Washington University has offered outstanding continuing education and professional programs since 1908. As the needs of their students increased, University College, the professional and continuing education division, was founded officially in 1931 and has been serving the St. Louis region ever since.
While their programs and offerings have evolved, their mission has remained the same: to give adult students the opportunity to experience the excitement of attending and earning a degree or certificate from a world-class research institution. University College is continued education at its highest quality, with tuition rates that are surprisingly affordable and competitive.
With more than 40 programs of study, you'll find degrees and certificates that will help you advance your career, explore new fields, and grow personally and professionally. Even those who aren't seeking a degree will find their place—our open enrollment policy allows students to take evening undergraduate courses on a non-degree basis while exploring their interests.
