Earn a UR degree on your terms.

Our undergraduate and graduate degree programs are designed to meet the needs of working professionals, balancing academic rigor with flexibility and value. You can attend part time in the evening at a pace that supports your other life commitments. As an added value (and surprise to many), our tuition ranks among the most competitive in Richmond, and financial aid is available.

Degrees

Build new skills.

Our noncredit professional development programs offer you the opportunity to expand your expertise and build your resume when you don’t have the time to commit to a degree program. Take a class or earn a certificate in dozens of topic areas from computing and technology, eMarketing, and writing to customer service and communication skills.

Noncredit

Catch up or get ahead at Summer School.

Stay on track with your degree plan. Pick up classes for a double major, minor or concentration. Catch up on degree requirements. Or explore something exciting or different. Plus our flexible schedules, varied class formats and multiple terms allow you to take a class or two and still have time for other summer fun.

Summer

Explore your love of learning in retirement.

Learning is refreshing — at any age. The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at the University of Richmond provides intellectual stimulation for a vibrant community of students age 50 and better. Attend Osher courses. Participate in interest groups. Audit select University classes. Do it all without tests or grades. In fact, no college background is needed at all. It’s your love of learning that counts.

Osher

Find your path. Explore your potential.

More than 50 years ago, the School of Professional and Continuing Studies (SPCS) pioneered professional and continuing education in Richmond. Today, we enrich the lives and careers of more than 5,000 part-time and nontraditional students of all ages.
