An online associate degree is an undergraduate degree that takes 2 years (60 credits) to complete. Students can earn their online associate degree from a junior or community college; 4-year colleges and universities may also offer associate degree programs.
Each 60-credit online associate program is composed of general education, major, and elective credits. To complete a traditional associate program in 2 years, doing 2 semesters a year, students must enroll in 15 credit hours each semester. Alternatively, students who are enrolled in online programs can study at their own pace. Those desiring to complete an associate program quicker than normal can enroll in an accelerated online associate program.
