Dear Prospective Student,
I want to personally thank you for taking the time to research the American College of Technology. ACOT strives to deliver quality education for less than similar colleges and universities. Many colleges have several complicated fee schedules and tuition rates that can change every semester. ACOT offers students all inclusive tuition that does not change. There are no complicated fee schedules. The ACOT model is simple; each course has a set cost and that cost does not change. There are no hidden fees, no application fees and no graduation fees. Book and software costs are locked in for students and are included in the total course cost. ACOT provides you all of the books, software and technology you need to succeed. There is even an optional technology package available to students who do not have adequate computers to engage in online learning. At ACOT, we take the guess work out of higher education. We are committed to providing you a straight forward and transparent experience.
To support our commitment to higher education, ACOT continuously modifies curriculum to ensure they meet current industry standards. ACOT only offers programs that we feel have growth potential. There are no liberal arts programs at ACOT, only courses that are directly related to the field of study you are pursuing.
In your pursuit of higher education, you can take advantage of many fields of study at ACOT. ACOT offers short term diploma programs (36 weeks), Associate's Degrees (60 weeks) and a Bachelor's Degree (60 weeks). ACOT exercises a 2+2 program. This program allows students to start an Associate's degree, complete the degree and continue directly into a Bachelor's degree if they choose to. This means that students pursuing a Bachelor's degree will accomplish associates roughly half way through their pursuit of a Bachelor's degree. Students can also take advantage of our accelerated schedules and complete an Associate's degree in less than 2 years and Bachelors in less than 4 years.
I invite you to explore the many benefits of ACOT, be sure to reach out to one of our admissions coordinators who can provide you with additional details about our many programs and student first programs.
Thank you for your time,

Lute Atieh on a different way of online education
All of our education levels transfer fully into the corresponding higher program level within the same field. A student enrolling into the technical diploma can continue to the associates in the same field with no loss of credits. A student completing the associates degree can transfer to the bachelor's degree with no loss of credits. This allows you to accomplish an associate's degree half way through your bachelor's degree. This saves you money and allows you to gain early access into the job market while you pursue your higher degree.NEXT ›
