Love Charter Oak! I couldn't have done it without them, and my great Advisor! They accepted my credits, helped me to apply credits for previous learning and I incorporated CLEP and Dantes testing. Low costs, high value!
April C., Alumna
One of the BEST colleges in Connecticut! Thank you for helping me to achieve my dreams. I will recommend Charter Oak State College to other students. The online system is very convenient. Charter Oak State College is affordable and offers scholarships to students.
Danny S., Alumnus
Best option to incorporate credits from another school and avoid redundant classes and additional expense. Best of both worlds!

Teachers all work in the area they are teaching and understand the stressors of work life and school.

I took 8 week classes and could do class work anytime of day or night. All the students were mature adults.

Excellent school for adults considering a degree program. I completed my undergraduate degree at COSC and was admitted into several graduate programs at flagship universities. I am currently completing my doctoral program and using COSC's excellent model in my dissertation.
Marcia H., Alumna
COSC is a great institution. The courses are challenging and taught by excellent faculty which will bring out the best in you. For those who has family obligations and working full time, this is a great institution for you because you have access to your online courses 24/7.
This is the perfect degree program for older, professional adults, or adults with family responsibilities.
I work full-time (and then some), have an unusual work schedule, and have a child. There is no way I could possibly finish my degree in a traditional classroom setting. With Charter Oak's online classes, testing options, and portfolio review for credit, you can complete most Charter Oak degree programs entirely from your own home.
Charter Oak offers excellent programs with fantastic academic advisors, good professors, and helpful administrative staff. They ALL want you to succeed. If you're a non-traditional student (older, family obligations, etc.) take a serious look at Charter Oak.
After researching dozens of online institutions I chose and graduated from COSC in 2013. The curriculum is based on giving marketable skills and the faculty is the most flexible in higher education that I have ever experienced. I recommend COSC to anyone seeking to complete their bachelors degree online.
Shane Z., Alumnus
The college, the administration and faculty will meet you where you are in life, to help you achieve an educational goal, and by that a career objective. I recommend Charter Oak for anyone, but especially for those needing considerations based around work, family and the schedule of their life.
An excellent education opportunity that allowed me to work full time and be a parent and still take the classes I needed to get my degree.
Great school and some awesome professors! Definitely gave me the confidence to keep going on towards my Master's!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at COSC and encourage others who may have been sidelined in their studies to contact the school and get back on track.
Excellent advisors who had the student's interest at heart.
