Applications for the Fall 2020 Business Transfer Degree Cohort are now closed.

Be aware this is a cohort program, which means that students are intended to take all or most of the courses together in sequence. Find out More about the Program for a list of classes in the Business Transfer Degree. If you have already successfully completed 3 or more of these classes at LACC or another college, it may be faster for you to pursue the degree on your own rather than being part of the program as all of these classes are offered online outside of the Online Academy classes. Feel free to email onlinedegree@lacitycollege.edu with a list of college classes that you have successfully completed to determine whether the Academy is the best way for you to reach your goal.
