Coastline Community College (Fountain Valley, Calif.) recently launched its Military Spouse Program. This unique program offers an affordable tuition rate of only $59 per unit, and textbooks are provided free of charge to military spouses.
Additionally, the program features accelerated eight-week online courses, five associate degree options to choose from, and a mere 12 semester hours needed to meet residency requirements.
Coastline has a long history of educational innovation. It was originally founded in 1975 as a college “without walls,” dedicated to distance learning. Drawing upon its experience producing Emmy-award winning telecourse content and its selection of Internet and CD-ROM courses, Coastline specifically began serving the military audience in the early 80s. Now, Coastline offers courses in the latest technologies like handheld devices (PDAs) and Smart Phones. Coastline graduated over 1,500 military graduates in 2007.
