The Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies
The Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies at Curry College recognizes the dedication of adults committed to advancement through graduate education. Curry offers graduate degree programs, certificate of advanced graduate studies (CAGS), and graduate certificates designed to provide the knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to advance. Our graduate programs are designed to develop critical reasoning, intellectual rigor, and reflective practice. Each program delivers the curricular challenges that inform and cultivate personal and professional development. Knowing that academic success is achieved through high levels of faculty and peer engagement, Curry ensures that graduate students work closely with expert faculty in small, individualized learning environments that nurture the development of creative, highly competent leaders. Through small classes and cohortbased delivery models, students come to know their faculty and fellow students well and benefit from these professional networks. Curry recognizes the unique challenges adults face in undertaking graduate work and responds with a full range of academic and advising services.
The Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies (CE/Grad) at Curry College appreciates the unique needs of adult students and provides certificates, degree programs, and individual courses for personal and professional advancement. In general, the Division adheres to the overall College academic policies and procedures, as defined in earlier sections of this Catalog. Following are Continuing and Graduate Studies-specific policies and procedures. CE/Grad’s flexible schedule allows adults to enroll in credit and non-credit courses, part-time evenings or weekends in hybrid and fully online formats.
A Continuing Education (CE) student is an individual who has officially registered through the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies and whose primary course load at Curry is composed of evening and weekend courses offered in a face-to-face, hybrid, or online format. Any Continuing Education student who chooses to take a course before 4:00 p.m. during the fall or spring semester will pay tuition and fees commensurate with the standard full-time (i.e., day) student rate. Continuing Education students do not pay a student activity fee and, thus, are not eligible to use the gym facilities or participate in varsity sports and other student activities covered by the fee.
Courses are offered at the following locations:
1071 Blue Hill Avenue
Milton, MA 02186-2395
36 Cordage Park Circle, Suite #200

Summer and Winter Sessions
In addition to fall and spring semesters, two summer sessions and a short January Winter Intersession are scheduled each year. Summer and Winter Intersession courses vary in length to provide flexibility and convenience. Some courses are taught in an intensive format, meeting daily and/or on weekends for a one-, two-, or three-week period. Summer course schedule guides are available through the Division of Continuing and Graduate Studies and on the student portal generally in March of each academic year. Winter Intersession course schedules are generally available by November.
Registration and Admission Information
Curry’s open enrollment policy allows you to take most undergraduate continuing education courses simply by registering for the course. Applications for admission, entrance examinations, and College Board Examination scores are not required. Credits earned for individual courses taken at Curry College may be applied to a certificate or degree program. The exceptions to open enrollment are our Nursing and cohort programs, which require an application and admission prior to enrollment. All Graduate programs are cohort-based and not available for open enrollment.
Continuing Education Undergraduate Admission
Students enrolled at Curry College who decide to pursue a degree program must apply for admission to be formally admitted (matriculated) into a degree program. Important note—in order to apply for financial aid, you must first be formally admitted to a degree program.
Applications to all programs are completed online. Admissions processing takes about two weeks once your file is complete, and financial aid applications take about two weeks to review after the admissions process is complete. Plan to complete the application and related documents well before the start of the semester. You can enroll in most Continuing Education courses while you are in the process of compiling your application materials for admission; however, you will not be eligible to receive financial aid until you are formally are admitted into a degree program.
The following documents are required:
1. Completed Continuing Education Undergraduate Application for Admission form
2. Official high school transcript or GED Certificate. (Note: If you have completed more than 30 college credit hours, you may submit a copy of your high school diploma in lieu of the high school transcript)
3. Transfer applicants must also forward sealed official transcripts of all previous college coursework
4. If your native language is NOT English, you must demonstrate English proficiency in ONE of the following ways:
Submit official documentation that you have graduated from a secondary school in which English was the official language of instruction

Special admissions requirements and procedures apply to the RNBS and ACCEL nursing programs. See the website for additional details.
Students not interested in pursuing a degree or certificate are not required to submit any application documents. Credit earned as a non-degree student may be applied towards a degree or certificate program should the student decide to pursue a degree or certificate program at a later date.
International students are required to be admitted to an undergraduate or graduate degree program as full-time students. Because international student admission, transfer credit, and visa paperwork is complex and takes time to process, the deadline is June 1 for attending in the Fall semester, October 1 for attending in the Spring semester, and February 1 for attending in the Summer semester. Please meet with an academic advisor to discuss procedures.
