Since 1972, we have helped make a difference in the lives of more than 55,000 adult students in New Hampshire and beyond. Through our valued relationships in the communities in which we serve – Concord, Conway, Manchester, Claremont, Rochester, and more – we have extended our reach to our valued business and community partners.

During this milestone year, we will celebrate the people and partners who have contributed towards our institution.

B.S. in Health Care Management

My hopes and dreams were put to good use right after graduation: I landed a new job as a practice manager for a local primary care health care facility. I am very excited for this new opportunity and it would not have been possible without my new degree!
