  • If you’re unable to get a transcript from a prior school due to COVID-19 related closures, let us know—we will work with you.

  • COA is holding an on-campus, in-person term in fall 2020. We are simultaneously offering hybrid online options for those students who are unable to be on campus for various reasons related to COVID-19. Our most up-to-date news on the college’s plans can be found on the COVID-19 Response section of our website.
