Minimum Credits for Bachelor’s Degree Admission

To join a bachelor’s degree, you’ll need to have at least 56 credit hours of transferable, college-level credit from accredited colleges or universities. If you’re not quite to that 56 minimum, we provide options for you to keep moving forward by taking elective courses from our associate-level programs or drop-in courses.

Technology Requirements

Whether you learn online or on-campus, we recommend that you have a laptop computer with reliable access to high-speed internet. As you engage in meaningful discussions with your peers and faculty, email and internet connections are a primary means of participating. While tablets can be helpful tools, we do not recommend them as a replacement for a laptop. Computer requirements include an operating system supported by Microsoft or Apple, a computer memory of more than 8GB, and more than 120GB of disk space. You can receive Microsoft Office 365 for free as a student. We also recommend you download Google Chrome in accessing the internet.

If you are an online student, we require that you have a webcam, microphone and speakers or headphones as you fully embrace the online learning experience of live presentations.
