Degree & Learning Options

Open Educational Resources

Courses with Open Education Resources (OER) provide students with the option to cut costs dramatically without sacrificing the quality of their education. A low-cost OER course ensures materials will not exceed $50 for a given class. The zero-cost OER option facilitates access to free course materials, eliminating the necessity of purchasing textbooks and multimedia components. To learn more about OER courses, please visit the webpage.


What is an A.S Degree?

Associate in Science (A.S.), like the A.A., may also serve as a transfer degree. Many students will earn their A.S. and then transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree. However, unlike the A.A. that focuses on liberal arts-based education, the A.S. focuses on the sciences.
