In 1963 Coleman College was founded on the unprecedented career opportunities that electronic data processing was creating in industry, business, government, and education. In the 1970s, Coleman responded to an ever-increasing need for individuals educated in Information Technology by offering Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science degree programs. Coleman University serves students and alumni from every part of the United States, and many foreign countries. In addition to traditional post high-school undergraduates, Coleman University students include active and retired military personnel, professionals seeking new career directions, and international students who are acquiring new knowledge and skills to take back to their home countries. These students attend Coleman University because of its reputation for high academic standards, professionalism and personal concern for each student.
