From A.A. to B.A., your undergraduate career starts here.

The first step is to decide which program is right for you.

Choose your new education path

You know you want a college education, but selecting the right program comes with a lot of options. You may be familiar with associate and bachelor's undergraduate degrees, but did you know that our 3-course learning tracks and 6-course certificates offer a way to focus on a particular topic of interest? And while earning a degree is what many undergraduate students desire, you could take the non-degree path and enroll in a class here for fun or to transfer to another college. The choice is yours, and we’re here to help you make it.
