Obtaining my Education Degree from Sterling College Online allowed me to study at my own pace. I had the freedom to work full-time, and still work on my degree. The online instructors were terrific, and they were always there when I needed them.


Even being so far away, everything was easily accessible. I enjoyed the freedom to complete course content at a leisurely pace.

Ross and Fern Freeman Lecture Series

Notice - April 3 Event Cancelled

It is with sadness that I share that we’re canceling the spring Freeman Lecture Series on April 3 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic and in accordance with CDC recommendations. The health and safety of our guests and community was our upmost consideration in this decision. We are hoping to reschedule a time to have Nikki Lerner visit our campus in the future.
