About Us

Established in 2007, Sterling College Online was founded as the online learning division of Sterling College. Our mission is to transform the learning experience and further the success of our students through expanded modes of access and delivery. Our purpose remains strong: to serve our local and global community by providing superior programs that respond to community needs. We place a priority on learning by providing lifelong education opportunities and excellent student services.

Additionally, we have a significant list of partners, affiliations, and articulation agreements in place in order to enhance the convenience and value of your education. With our Guaranteed Admission Advantage, we also make it easy to transfer credits from your associate degree!
