Achieving The School/work/life Balance

With over 125 years of adult education, Strayer University knows a thing or two about helping working adults find the time for school. We offer two ways to attend class: online and on campus.

Strayer University has been a pioneer in online learning, teaching online classes for over 20 years. By enrolling in on-line classes, you can attend class and study at any time and from anywhere in the world, as long as you have an Internet connection. For students with children or those who have a demanding job, online learning may be key to fitting their degree into their already busy schedule.


Our leadership and innovation has allowed us to create an online experience that mimics the classroom with group lessons, easy ways to engage with your professors, chat rooms, online tutors, and peer groups to help with your studies. So, even if you’re actually sitting at home by yourself, you can be involved in an active, engaging online classroom.

With more than 70 convenient Strayer campus locations, there may be a campus close to your home or work. Many busy adults who wish to be on-campus take advantage of evening and weekend classes, as these class times tend to fit around work hours.

Strayer University works on a quarter-based system – winter, spring, summer and fall – providing the flexibility to start your classes at four times a year. Classes typically begin in the first weeks of January, April, July and October. You can start your degree at the beginning of any quarter.
