Online College Degrees

Schools that offer online college degrees.

Online college degrees are becoming more common as people do not have the flexibility in their schedules to go to college. In the past, online college degrees were thought of to be all degree mills or lacking in what students learned, but times have changed. In recent years, even well-known universities are starting to offer online college degrees or specific courses that can be completed on the internet.

Prospective students should always check to see if the school they plan on earning a campus-based or online college degree is accredited. Students should also check to see if the school accepts financial aid and if they are ever required to attend classes on campus for labs, lectures or group projects.

My husband works for an online computer college. I think it is the wave of the future.

Very useful discussion

Well, while there are actually 2 degrees I want to obtain (one in filmm-making and one writing/publishing/editing), I am an old-fashioned soul who is in love with the idea of a campus, and face to face interactions with teachers and friends. Yes, online education is cheaper but I hope one day I'll be able to afford the on-site thing;) Lovely article. Out of votes so I will be liking and stumbling this;)

Thanks, Pinar! Where I live the closest school is 62 miles away, so online learning has really provided a way for people in our community without cars to advance. Hopefully I'll be able to interview a few of them and see what they thought of their experience.

Great! Well, I'd love to read the interviews if you publish them.
