Goodwin University is an innovative learning community that empowers hard-working students to become sought-after employees.

We tailor our programs to address the needs of employers, and we shape them to fit the lives of students. Classes are conveniently offered year-round — days, evenings, weekends, and online. Degrees may be flexibly layered across certificate, associate, bachelor's, and master's programs in a variety of in-demand fields.

Better still, we surround our students with the personal support and the professional guidance​ they need — not just to earn degrees, but to change lives for themselves, their families, and their communities.

"Transferring into Goodwin from a different school on a bit of short notice, they made what was a difficult and stressful financial maze easier to navigate. They were clear and honest with me and worked with me on a plan that allowed me to graduate on time and keep my costs manageable."
