In 2014, Pierce College at Joint Base Lewis-McChord resolved to offer an entire Associate of Arts university transfer degree that uses open educational resources (OER) in place of traditional textbooks. One year later, we launched POP: The Pierce Open Pathway. This presentation describes the POP degree and its benefits, and explains how in a single year we were able to become the third US community college to offer a complete OER-based associate degree.
