Career Focused

All our adult degrees emphasize key professional principles such as organizational capabilities, information technology and literacy, discipline inquiry, communication skills, and ethics and morality.

Fast is Good

You can secure program credits through work experience and training in your career. When you accelerate your path to a degree, you move your career forward at lightning speed.

Private but Affordable

Financial assistance offerings based on prior work experience, specialized training in your career area, and need means you can focus on preparing for a rewarding career – not a lifetime of debt.

OCU took amazing care of me throughout the entire admission’s process and beyond. They promptly answered my questions and helped keep things moving forward. I looked at several schools, which have comparable programs, but OCU is by far the most warm and welcoming.
