Your future, your choice.

What to expect:


When you walk through the doors at EMU Lancaster, we hope that you sense the warm, welcoming feel of our EMU community! Learn alongside a group of your peers, forming close relationships and friendships along the way. Cohorts of up to 25 students begin in the fall (August/September) and in the spring (January/February).


Choose the length of program that works best for you! Our accelerated cohorts can be completed in under two years, with classes meeting only one day per week for four hours (daytime and evening options are available). In our part-time, extended format, classes meet every other week for four hours in the evening, and can be completed in four years.


The faculty and staff at EMU Lancaster provide the support that helps you to succeed and achieve your educational goals. Our academic advisors can help you select the courses that fit your interests and needs as well as offer time management suggestions to help you become a self-determined learner. Students also have access to technical support, writing tutors, library resources, and disability resources.

Attending EMU was everything it was ‘cracked up to be’ and more. The team of educators are passionate, dedicated, supportive, and genuinely want their students to succeed. I couldn’t have asked for a better educational experience!
