CALS Online Academy

Supporting your success in the classroom
and in the field.

Preparing Students, Supporting Extension

For many students, the path to CALS begins at a community college. CALS Online Academy (COA) courses ease the transition for students transferring to NC State.

With the same depth and breadth of other introductory NC State courses, Online Academy courses prepare students to succeed at CALS — and allow students to transfer community college credits to NC State.

For Extension agents and staff, Online Academy courses provide training to expand practical knowledge. Is there a science class you think will help with your day-to-day work? Take one for free through the COA. Need to brush up on a topic you studied years ago? Do so on your timeline with a self-paced COA course.

Partners for the Future

“NC State partnerships with community colleges will be critical in meeting the needs of agricultural jobs in our future. The end result is a more informed and stronger workforce that meets the needs of North Carolina and beyond.”

Richard Linton, CALS Dean
