Our mission is to reinvent higher education for underrepresented returning adult learners, using a model that is individualized, interest-based, project-driven, workplace-enhanced, cohort-supported, flexible, supportive, and affordable. College Unbound integrates the students’ own purposes for learning with the needs of their workplaces and communities, improving the lives of the students and the lives of those they touch. As a degree completion college, College Unbound provides access, support through completion, and career placement, ensuring that students get in, stay in, and move forward.
College Unbound has partnered with Charter Oak State College to help students earn college degrees. College Unbound provides the support services. Charter Oak provides the courses. Together they have created a project-based concentration to help students develop 21st century work skills. Or students can develop an individualized concentration to meet their unique needs or select a subject area concentration. Students become a part of the Charter Oak student body, and as such are eligible for all support services. Students graduate with a degree from Charter Oak State College.
