Regents Online Campus Collaborative

The Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system consists of 46 institutions with a combined annual enrollment of more than 200,000 students, making it the nation’s sixth largest system of public higher education. TBR’s six state universities, 13 community colleges and 27 technology centers offer outreach for instructional delivery in all of Tennessee’s 95 counties. The TBR system is a $2.2 billion per year enterprise.

In 2001, the Tennessee Board of Regents colleges, universities and technology centers joined in a collaborative effort to offer a full range of graduate and undergraduate degrees, certificates and diplomas online through Regents Online Degree Programs (RODP) and Regents Online Continuing Education and Workforce Development (ROCE). Initially, the programs were created to offer more flexible and accessible education options for Tennesseans. Since their inception, these online programs have become nationally and internationally renowned as high-quality, affordable and convenient options for students worldwide.

The online education offered through Regents Online mirrors the same education offered at the physical campus locations. All campuses in the collaboration are regionally accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), while several programs have national accreditation status.

Students have the opportunity to choose a “home campus” from among the six universities awarding Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, the 13 community colleges providing Associate degrees and the 27 Technology Centers offering technical certificates and diplomas. Individuals apply for admission, register for courses, and are awarded degrees, diplomas, or certificates from the home campus.

Associate Degrees

The Regents Online Program offers a variety of Associate degrees. These degrees can be earned directly from 13 community colleges located across the state of Tennessee. Below you will find detailed listings of the degrees and certificate offered through the Regents Online program, or go to to view a map of all of the community colleges.

The university parallel associate degree programs are designed for those students ultimately seeking bachelor’s degrees.
