Speaker 1:

Education transforms lives. Not just with lofty goals far into the future, but through everyday achievements.

This idea is the foundation on which Rasmussen College—now Rasmussen University—was built. In 1900, Walter Rasmussen started a business school to meet the needs of a booming economy. And 53 students took their first steps, enrolling to become bookkeepers, secretaries, typists and accountants. They worked in a classroom, shoulder to shoulder, on typewriters. Now, we work online. When the digital age demanded evolution, Rasmussen University was an early leader in online education. Innovative curriculum and technology opened doors for students to learn on their own terms, while still gaining the valuable soft skills they would need to succeed. With kids, full-time jobs, life responsibilities and unwavering determination, Rasmussen students know that every step counts. In a workforce that needs great nurses, great people in education and the justice system, the business minded, the tech savvy and those with an eye for design, Rasmussen will continue to partner in your progress toward meaningful careers. Over 120 years after opening, we are still evolving to meet student and workforce needs, adding master's degrees and launching our first doctoral program. What started as a revolutionary business institution is now a university with over 50 programs, over 20 campuses, a national online presence and the most ADN nursing graduates in the U.S.

At Rasmussen University, we'll never stop finding ways to support our students and our communities. We’re lifelong learners, innovators and mentors. We'll stay curious, continue to take chances and keep putting students first, giving them the tools they're going to need for their next steps.

Support for Every Step

With 60+ programs and multiple start dates a year, you’re in control of your own education. You don’t need to prove yourself to us because we already believe in you. It’s our job to provide the support and quality instruction you need to take the next step in your life.

So come talk to us. We’ll put together a detailed program plan, assist you in the financial aid process, if you qualify, and introduce you to our network of support services.

"In less than two years, I got my Bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, and I have never been happier. It was super easy to work with the various departments, and there was no runaround. My student advisor had a wonderful plan set up for my schedule, and I was able to work full time and finish a degree from the comfort of my home."
