Earning an associate degree is a great goal if you’re interested in changing careers, moving up in your current career, or want to move on to a bachelor’s degree. StraighterLine has partnered with Brookhaven College and the Dallas County Community College District to deliver two fully-accredited, fully-online associate degree programs. If you’ve wanted to know how to get an associate degree online in less time and with fewer student loans, this new partnership may be the perfect fit for you!
It’s Easy to Get an Associate Degree Online
It’s simple is it to get started on your associate degree. Follow these easy steps:
- Apply now online
- Decide which degree program you want to pursue – business or criminal justice
- Start your Brookhaven College Associate degree program
That’s it! While enrollment in many associate degree programs may be that easy, what sets this program apart from other accredited online associate degree programs is that you can apply for financial aid through the U.S. Department of Education using Educational Quality through Innovation Partnerships (EQUIP) program.
What is EQUIP and how does it work? This program allows economically-challenged students to use innovative means to pursue their education. This unique partnership is one of only a few chosen by the U.S Department of Education which allows students – for the first time – to use federal financial aid for courses taken through nontraditional providers, like StraighterLine.
