Invest In Yourself
At ECPI University, we understand that paying for college can be a challenge, but it shouldn’t be an obstacle to your success. That’s why we take a comprehensive approach to helping bridge the affordability gap. Our goal is to help make college expenses both affordable and predictable.
Begin Earning Sooner
Accelerated programs don’t just save you time, they also save you money. At ECPI University you can graduate faster, which means you can enter your career field much sooner.

The average time to graduation is 2.6 years* at ECPI University vs. 5.1 years* as the median for traditional 4 year colleges. How much is your time worth?
Value of in demand skills
Science, technology, engineering, math, and healthcare, or STEM + H, are some of the most in demand career fields. That is why ECPI University specializes in offering programs in these areas. When you learn a skill employers are looking for, you can expect to have more opportunities when searching for a career.
