History

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 ACCSCT to change its degree offering from Associate of Applied Science to Associate of Science.
