Imagine the convenience of earning your entire associate degree or career studies certificate without having to set foot on campus.
Having 24/7 access to your virtual classroom allows you to complete the work necessary for your degree or certificate on your time. (You will still come to campus for science labs, which cannot be completed online.)
Don't worry about having the right software. Once you are a student, you can download Microsoft Office 365 for free!
TCC’s online programs are taught by the same faculty who teach traditional classes. Your degree or certificate will be the same as if you were attending classes on campus.
Take a look at the program options below, and see if one could be right for you.
