Originally Published: 6/13/2018

Los Angeles City College has launched The LACC Online Academy, a new innovative full time fully online program. Students take one course each month allowing them to earn an Associate Degree in Business Administration in 22 months.

Tuition for first time full time college students enrolled in The LACC Online Academy is free for the first year. Graduates of the program can articulate into a California State University Los Angeles (CSULA) business program.

Additionally, LACC is offering financial aid, tutoring and counseling to LACC Online Academy students. Students will be able to take one course per month and complete 60 units and an AA degree within 22 months at a fraction of the cost of other online business degree programs. Each term is five months long with a one month break in between terms. Classes include Business, Mathematics, Law, Accounting and Economics as well as courses in Philosophy, Cinema, Music and Health.

“Our program was specifically designed to serve those with family and work responsibilities who may not have the ability to attend our campus on a regular basis,” said Dr. Mary Gallagher, President, Los Angeles City College. “Upon completion, students will earn the same AA transfer degree as on-campus students and also have a pathway to transfer to a CSULA to achieve a BS degree in business, all within two years.”

Students must have a high school diploma or GED to apply, live or reside in the state of California, have a GPA of at least 2.6 or at least 2 years of full time employment and have ready access to a computer with a web cam and internet access.
