What if you could earn your bachelor’s degree in 32 months for less than the cost of single semester at most private colleges and with NO STUDENT LOANS? That is what Oak Valley provides for you. You come to Oak Valley prepared to take a full course load over eight semesters, like every other college. The difference is you attend school year round, and earn your degree in less than three years, simply by getting every class you need to graduate and completing two summer semesters. It is not more work. By being more focused in what you take and when you take it, you are able to graduate on time and without student loans.
