Franklin University’s Community College Alliance program offers an online Bachelor of Science degree through an educational alliance with more than 245 community and technical colleges in the United States, including Genesee Community College. This innovative program provides opportunities for students at two-year colleges to complete a bachelor’s degree in a format that fits their career and lifestyle needs without leaving their community.

Since 1998, the CCA program has enrolled more than 8,500 students and this term alone had 148 graduates. Franklin University, located in Columbus, OH, was founded in 1902 and has been a pioneer in meeting the needs of adult students who have the ambition to continue their education in combination with other responsibilities.

“Working with Franklin University’s CCA program has been very successful for Genesee students, especially those who juggle work and personal responsibilities along with their education,” said Claudia Moore, Executive VP of Academic Affairs at Genesee. “We are very pleased to be involved in the CCA program and look forward to more of our students having success through the program in the future.”
