More Options. Endless Possibilities.

Guided by our mission to provide educational opportunities for learners everywhere, Franklin University, a leading educator of working adults, acquired Urbana University. With the approval of the Higher Learning Commission, Urbana was transitioned to a Franklin University branch campus and continues to provide career-focused degree programs within a close-knit, residential campus environment. The integration of Urbana into Franklin means more academic options for CCP students - from what you can study, to how and where you study. At Franklin University and our Urbana University Branch Campus, the choices are yours.
