Carl Albert State College has been ranked among the 50 most affordable community colleges offering online degrees by Affordable Schools. The ranking was published on the organization's website in April where Carl Albert State College was ranked 30th.


This ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database and each school's website. The top 50 community colleges offering an online associate's degree were selected and ranked based on in-state tuition.

Carl Albert State College is a community college located in southeastern Oklahoma. CASC enrolls approximately 3,300 students annually across its two campuses as well as online through CASC Online. The main campus is in Poteau, Okla., with a branch campus in Sallisaw. CASC offers eight degrees and three certificate programs completely online.


"Carl Albert State College is proud to carry out our mission to provide affordable, accessible, and exceptional education that fosters student success," says Dr. Jay Falkner, CASC President. "We are proud to be included in this ranking of the most affordable community colleges in the country."


Academic programs include certificates and degrees, with the latter broadly covering applied science, science, and art. CASC recognizes transfer agreements with more than 12 postsecondary institutions in the Oklahoma region that help students looking to pursue a bachelor's degree after graduating from CASC. Three types of associate degrees are offered: Associate of Applied Science, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts. Specifically, CASC confers 10 online degrees in topics such as social science, sociology/psychology, computer technology, general studies, child development, and business.
