Welcome to the School of New and Continuing Studies!

At NCS our programs are specifically designed for adult students. Many of the NCS faculty and staff were (and continue to be) adult learners themselves, so we know the challenges you face when trying to balance school, work, family, and just general life stuff. But we also know that those challenges can be overcome, and we’re here to help you with that. It’s what we do.

Our Mission

Our mission at the School of New and Continuing Studies (NCS) is to broaden access to Seattle University’s transformative education and to meet the future workforce demands of Seattle and the Puget Sound region.

Our Mission

Experienced Faculty, Dedicated Staff
