Why get your degree online?

Let's face it. You need a college degree to get a better job. But, if you have responsibilities to work or family, going to class at a physical campus might not be practical. The solution? Let your classes come to you!

Online learning is the perfect alternative for busy adults like you. Earning your degree online allows you the freedom to attend your classes anytime—anywhere.

You may be wondering: Is online learning really as effective as on-campus learning? The answer might surprise you, but some studies say yes—if not more effective. Students in online learning conditions perform better on average than those in typical classroom settings, according to a recent study done by SRI International.1

In many ways, going to school online is just like attending class at a traditional campus, only now everything is at your fingertips—24/7. Whether you’re at home, at work, traveling, or serving in the military, all of your courses and services are just a click away.
