Provo College specializes in career education. The College was formerly accredited by the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS).[1] Provo College offers bachelor's degrees, associate degrees and diplomas in fields such as nursing, physical therapy assisting, medical assisting, medical billing and coding, dental assisting, criminal justice, paralegal studies, graphic design, business, massage therapy, personal fitness training and office administration. Provo College offers programs on the campus and online. The campus is located at 1450 West 820 North in Provo, Utah.


The school opened in 1984 under the name of Dental Careers Institute and was later changed to Advanced Careers Institute. In December 1989, the college changed its name to Provo College. The name change reflected the broadened scope of the college with the addition of curriculum in court reporting and medical transcription.

In April 1992, the school was acquired by the Center for Professional Studies, Inc. and relocated to its current location. During 1996 and 1997, the college expanded its offerings and added the Associate of Applied Science degree to all its programs. Subsequently, in 2005, Provo College was granted approval from ACCSC to change its degree offering from Associate of Applied Science to Associate of Science. Bachelor's degrees were added in 2013.
