Part-time and Continuing Studies Admission


Students come to Fairfield University for a wide variety of reasons and attend in a number of ways. While many attend as full-time undergraduates, many others approach their undergraduate studies as part-time students or even come to earn a second undergraduate degree.  Some come to Fairfield to take a professional certificate or just to enroll in a course for personal enrichment.

Regardless of the path our students take, they can all rest assured they will receive the same level of teaching excellence and personalized attention that Fairfield University is known for in supporting students to achieve their education and life goals.
