Online Degree Completion Programs

Online Degree Completion (ODC) programs require prospective students to transfer in an Associate's Degree from specific Community Colleges with whom ECSU has an established articulation agreement. Students must complete all courses listed in each articulation agreement (approximately 60 semester credit hours) before being admitted into an Online Degree Completion Program. Once accepted, students will then be allowed to complete any remaining coursework online at ECSU. Students receiving associates degrees from Community Colleges that do not have articulation agreements with ECSU are not guaranteed an online schedule for courses.  Below is a list of all Community Colleges in which ECSU has 2+2 Online Degree Completion articulation Agreements.
