Program description

Tacoma Community College is now offering a new online business degree that works with your schedule, pace and life.

Motivated students can finish a two-year degree within 18 months. How? The program is competency-based – meaning, you work at your own pace and move as far and fast as your proven knowledge takes you.

With this program, you can:

  • Earn credit for what you know. Use knowledge you already have from work or life experience to pass assessments that prove competencies. 
  • Start during the first three months of each enrollment period. Earn your degree without being locked into (or out of) a traditional quarter system.
  • Advance at your pace. Make progress by passing assessments when you are ready. This allows more flexibility with work and family.  
  • Receive personalized support. Get help and guidance from highly qualified instructors and a CBE Completion Coach.
