Online Learning - The Ultimate in Flexibility

Online education offers flexibility to fit college into you busy life, plus it allows for great savings in time and distance.  If you can only work on coursework late at night or early morning? No problem! Though you will still have to meet your deadlines for completion of reading, tasks and projects.

Your Online Options:

Take Individual Classes Online

Several programs have multiple classes offered in a fully online or partially online format that are part of the program's required courses or electives.

What to Expect with Online Learning 

With online learning, you won't be sitting face-to-face with your instructor or your classmates, so it's not the experience you'll recall from grade school. While you could wear fluffy bunny slippers while sipping coffee and working on coursework, online classes are not the easy way out. In fact, these classes often take more attention to detail and self-motivation. Will online classes be good fit for you?
