Our Faculty

One of the first words often used to describe the SCE is “community.” It’s our mission to support you through every step of your journey. That support is evident in the classroom, where our faculty understand the challenges of being an adult learner. These teachers — a mix of full-time PC faculty and industry professionals — are collaborators, inspiring educators, and student advocates.

Our Students

SCE students come from all walks of life. We know. Our students are parents who are going back to school, professionals looking to advance within their current company, and military members. Just like you, they faced obstacles when they decided to go back to school. And just like you, they’re overcoming those obstacles.

Military and Family Members

Named a Military-Friendly School by G.I. Jobs magazine for the third year in a row, Providence College works hard to help servicemembers and their spouses complete their bachelor's, associate's and certificates. Our advisers understand the unique needs of military families and take the time to walk you through every step of the college enrollment process.

Tuition Benefit Programs


We participate in the Montgomery GI Bill, Post-9/11 GI Bill, and MyCAA tuition benefit programs and offer excellent benefits counseling for our military students. For detailed information, please visit Veterans and Dependents Benefits at Providence College.
To receive Veterans Benefits, you must present an Application for Education Benefits Form 22-1990; or if you have received benefits from a previous school, just notify Enrollment Services.
When you register for class in the School of Continuing Education, please indicate you are to receive veteran benefits by checking the appropriate box on the registration form. 
Enrollment verification is done after the second week of school.  You may expect to receive your first check approximately two months after the semester begins. If you decide to drop or add a course, please contact a Certifying Official in Enrollment Services since the College must notify the Veterans Administration as to when your amount of credits changed.  Contact Donna Cairo at  401‐865‐2982
