Degrees and Certificates

It takes as few as five courses to complete our medical office technology certificate programs and 14 courses to complete our medical coding and billing certificate programs. Our certificates of completion are stackable which means they are linked and the completion of each one draws you a semester closer to completion of an associate degree.

The Medical Coding and Billing program prepares students for employment as medical coders and/or billers.

The Medical Office Technology certificates and Associate of Applied Science degree can be completed entirely online (except for internship) or with a combination of online courses including traditional or blended classroom courses on central campus each semester through open-entry courses (start anytime) or weekend courses in our campus Career and Technology Education (CATE) Center.
