Visiting Students

Charter Oak State College building

Take our online courses without enrolling in a degree program.

Are you a student at another college and seeking to catch up or get ahead on your credits? Do you want to earn credits but need the flexibility that an online course offers? Or perhaps your home institution does not offer a course when you want or need to take it. At Charter Oak you can register as a visiting student to take courses without enrolling in a degree program.

Follow these easy steps:

Search our courses to find the online course(s) you want to take.

Fill out the Registration Request Form to join our online community.

Once you have received a user name and password (emailed to you within 1 to 2 business days) you can login to our ACORN Student Portal and register for courses.

It's that easy!

Visiting students will be charged a Course Fee, Student Services Fee and Technology Fee.

Please note: Visiting students are not required to meet course prerequisites, though they are recommended.
