Dedicated Support - Our Students are Our First Priority

At CLS, your cohort won't look like the traditional college student. Many of our students are balancing family, work, and life responsibilities. We make it our job to help them every step of the way.

Upon enrollment, every CLS student gains access to an incredible network of people whose primary job is to help – from our student services advisers and program directors to our dedicated distance learning librarian and technical support team.

In addition to offering classes 100% online, CLS is also able to offer onsite options for students who want to attend class in person. However, availability of onsite courses is dependent on the number of students enrolled at each location.
