Welcome to the Chadwick University Alumni Association WebsiteChadwick University was established in 1989 and offered undergraduate and graduate degree programs in business and environmental studies. By 1999 Chadwick University had expanded its offerings to include degree programs in criminal justice and psychology.
As a non-traditional school of higher learning, Chadwick provided its students with the unique opportunity to study in an individualized learning environment. Students were able to begin their program at anytime and complete course work at their own pace.
Chadwick had gained acceptance by several Fortune 500 companies and government agencies as a means for employees to complete their college degree. Tuition reimbursement was also offered by many of these employers.
Traditional institutions began to recognize that there was a great demand for "off-campus" studies. Rapid advances in technology and communications made e-studies a more viable approach to learning advanced subject matter and colleges and universities quickly began marketing their own non-traditional offerings.
Unfortunately, competition in the higher education arena made it difficult for many distance learning schools to compete. Well established academic institutions across the country frowned upon the notion that students could simply acquire knowledge without classroom walls. Bad press circulated about diploma mills and questionable business practices preventing many quality post secondary schools with the opportunity to flourish and succeed.
Chadwick University has now stopped offering the valuable programs it once provided. The academic office in Birmingham, Alabama is closed but the school continues to offer student records and transcript services. Transcript Request Form
