Why Choose an Online College? For a large population of students, including those with demanding full-time jobs, those with children, military personnel, and those who live in remote or rural areas, attending a traditional on-campus program may simply be out of the question. To do so would cause undue stress and numerous expenses including regular travel costs, childcare costs, leaving a job, or relocating. Moreover, the traditional classroom-learning model simply doesn’t work for everyone. Online college, however, provides numerous benefits that can remedy these issues.Many graduates of accredited online colleges report high satisfaction with their choice to earn a degree online. Parents can stay home with their families, professionals can keep their jobs, military personnel can study while deployed, and your world doesn’t have to stop because you have to get to class. Not only that, with low overhead costs and special scholarships, online education can actually be more affordable than traditional on-campus programs.How do I know if an online degree is right for me? Earning an online degree may not be the right choice for everyone. Before deciding on a program, students should ask themselves what kind of student they are, what their goals and motivations are, if they can handle it financially, how they learn best, how organized they are, and if their personality is suited to online learning. Are online classes as good as in-person classes? Whether looking at online or traditional programs, the quality of classes differs from school to school. The best online schools offer online courses with the same rigorous curricula and standards as their on-campus counterparts, and offer identical quality through a flexible online medium. Are online college courses cheaper? When it comes to education, “cheaper” shouldn’t be the operative term, so much as “more affordable.” That said, online college courses typically cost less to complete than on-campus courses. However, for students considering taking online courses from a college in another state will likely wind up paying out-of-state tuition prices, which can be unnecessarily expensive. Students should seriously consider taking advantage of the in-state tuition discounts by finding their preferred online degree at a school in their state. Are online students eligible to receive financial aid? Like traditional, on-campus students, online students may be eligible to receive financial aid. However, online students need to do their homework regarding the specific terms of their eligibility. Online students need to adhere to FAFSA guidelines and deadlines, college guidelines and deadlines, be enrolled full-time, ensure the online college is regionally accredited, and meet other criteria.
