About

At Sagence Learning, we believe that the best educational opportunities should be open to all.

That’s why we are dedicated to enabling our partners to provide adult learners with the flexible, focused solutions they need to achieve their goals. Sagence Learning specializes in competency-based education technology to deliver affordable, measurable and rewarding learning experiences that lead to real-world jobs and career achievement.

Sagence Learning's technology exists for one reason: to give colleges and universities a blueprint for delivering robust CBE programs—the kind that provides student results data required for accreditation and financial aid. What’s more, our design methodology, technology platform and Client Success Support team ensure that our partners’ CBE programs pave the way for student success.
