Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Peirce College continues to closely monitor the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on a local, regional and national level.

In alignment with the latest guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19, Peirce College’s physical campus will remain closed until December 31, 2021 

All Session 5, 6, 1, and 2 courses will be delivered entirely online for all students, and no on-campus courses will be offered. 

Using web conferencing tools, we will continue to offer synchronous learning experiences to our online courses so you can have live interactions with faculty and classmates. Please contact your professors with additional questions.

Welcome to the Middle States Commission on Higher Education Peer Evaluation Team!

​Beginning on Sunday, October 17th, Peirce College welcomes the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE) Peer Evaluation Team. The MSCHE Site Visit will take place virtually October 17-20. The MSCHE Peer Evaluation team will conduct a comprehensive assessment of how Peirce achieves MSCHE Standards of Accreditation and Requirements of Affiliation through meetings with Peirce staff, faculty, Board members, and students, and the evaluation of our Self-Study Report and Evidence Inventory. This visit is a culmination of the Self-Study process at Peirce that has been underway for more than two and a half years.. 

Peirce has held its institutional accreditation through MSCHE since 1971. This is a testament to the College’s assurance and commitment to providing quality education and services in accordance with the Peirce mission. In order to maintain our accreditation, Middle States requires us, and all member institutions, to complete a self-study every eight years, along with an annual update.

For information about MSCHE, go to https://www.msche.org/accreditation. If you have questions about the Peirce College Self-Study process, visit our Self-Study webpage or email provost@peirce.edu

Fall 2021 Emergency Aid Grants for Students

 

The Fall 2021 Emergency Aid Grant fund application will open on Monday, October 25th. Grant decisions will be made within 48 hours of application submission. We anticipate exhausting our funds quickly, so please make sure to have all of your documentation prepared by Monday and apply by the end of the day.  Applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted. 

 

Emergency aid grants are now available on a limited basis for currently enrolled students. These grants can be used to cover things like overdue utility bills and rent, food, unexpected medical/dental bills, backup childcare, and transportation. Guidelines are available here.

 

If you think you may qualify, please create an online account on the Peirce DreamKeepers portal and submit an application. Students who have already received an emergency aid grant are allowed to apply again, but priority will be given to students who have not received an award in the past. Documentation of your request for assistance, including copies of bills or estimates, is required. If approved for funding, payment will be made to the third party as quickly as possible.

 

All requests will be evaluated and decisions will be communicated directly with students. If you do not receive an Emergency Aid grant, you may qualify for an additional upcoming financial assistance opportunity through the American Rescue Plan (CARES). More details about this program will be provided soon.

 

If you have questions or would like to discuss your eligibility, please contact Tracey Thomas at tathomas@peirce.edu.
