Let Fairfield University help you make the change you need by setting you on the path to start or complete your bachelor’s degree as a part-time student. As an institution, we offer many benefits to our part-time degree-seeking students including:

  • Custom enrollment advising
  • Discounted tuition fees
  • High transfer credits
  • Traditional, hybrid and online classes
  • Flexible and accelerated one, five or seven week courses
  • Credits for life/work experience

Since many part-time students are either starting or completing their bachelor's degree and often have busy lives and lots of questions, we welcome and encourage conversations to provide valuable insights and assistance before, during and after the application process - all the way to initial enrollment!
