To celebrate the launch of new business degrees and certificates, Oregon Coast Community College is deeply discounting tuition for select courses.Introduction to Business (BA 101), Introduction to Accounting (BA 111), and computer applications classes, including beginning and intermediate courses in Excel and Word, are among the courses available at just $100 per course for Fall term only.

“Normally, a four-credit class like BA 101 would run nearly $500, including tuition and associated fees,” said OCCC President Birgitte Ryslinge. “For this term, however, we wanted to welcome everyone into our classrooms to celebrate the launch of these important programs.”

Ryslinge said the registration process for anyone looking at taking a single discounted course will be expedited, too. “They may not be interested in pursuing a degree or certificate, but rather working to improve job skills and build a stronger résumé with a particular class. We have worked to streamline registration for these folks so they can get registered with a simple phone call, rather than follow-up meetings with academic advisors, which we typically require for all new registrants.”

Based at the College’s North County center in Lincoln City, the Associate of Science Oregon Transfer (ASOT) in Business degree was launched last year. This year, that degree program is joined by two-year degrees and less-than-one-year certificates in Accounting and Administrative Assistant.

Heading up the programs will be the College’s first-ever full-time business faculty, Alberto Flores, who will be teaching the BA 101 course this fall in a completely online format.“We’re excited to offer the Introduction to Business course online,” said Dave Price, OCCC’s director of small business development and community education. “Lincoln County is a big place, and teaching this course online is going to make it available to folks in every corner of the county, whether they live in Rose Lodge or Eddyville, Yachats or Siletz. And, it will be unlike most online courses, typically taught by strangers to hundreds of anonymous students from across the globe. This will be an online community of local students, each able to receive one-on-one attention from OCCC faculty, all from the comfort of their own home.”

Registration is open now through Friday, Sept. 23 for these courses, which begin the week of Sept. 26.
In addition to Career and Technical Education programs, OCCC offers two-year Associate and Transfer degrees, plus highly regarded nursing and aquarium science programs, along with a long list of other programs and services. Its growing lineup of non-credit community education courses will include many new additions for Fall 2016, including courses on topics ranging from home brewing to creative writing.
