From its roots as a seminary founded in 1882, St. Ambrose University’s mission has always been to educate. We’re proud of our history and strong adherence to the Catholic intellectual tradition, which has produced Ambrosians who have made a difference in the lives of others for more than 136 years.

We’re dedicated to a student-centered approach, whether you’re studying online or on campus. Students receive priority treatment from our enrollment counselors as you begin the application process, and you’ll quickly become part of the St. Ambrose family when you enroll in one of our numerous degree programs.

We believe that St. Ambrose develops our students for success and life-long learning, and there are many benefits to becoming an Ambrosian.
