College On The Internet: The World of Online College Degrees

Mar 11th, 2010 | By webucation | Category: Online College Degrees

Everyone has heard about distance learning. Often treated as a joke in movies and sitcoms, usually about how easy it is to get and the dubious quality of education provided, nowadays, it is being treated more seriously. This can be seen in the veritable explosion of legitimate universities offers in online college degrees. Advertisements about additional education can be seen plastered all over the Internet.

Though it’s not exactly advisable for young people, getting an online college degree is definitely the way to go if you’re already working and are hoping to add a bit more to that CV of yours. Traditional college is great and gives you a lot of life experiences, but when you’ve already been through college once and just want to earn that extra degree then an online degree might just be right for you. The benefits are quite noticeable in terms of time and money. First, online degrees usually take twelve to eighteen months to finish – and this is mostly because you’re not doing it full-time. Compared to the four-year course that most traditional courses entail, this is nearly a fifty percent cut in the time investment – not to mention that you’re still working while studying; earning money all the while.

The money you earn can also be added to the money you’ve saved – traditional classroom teaching is, on the whole, expensive. Rooms, electricity, handouts and a hundred other things that make up your tuition fee are cut by seventy-five percent when you are studying for an online degree. Your expenses will also be almost non-existent; visits to your college or testing center are usually done only once a month or term instead of having a daily class.

So, who’s offering these courses? There are a lot of online-only universities and there are several state univrsity systems like the University of Maryland that offer online degrees. The important thing is that you always check a school’s accreditation before enrolling. There are six accrediting associations for the United States depending on location so it would be best to find out the actual physical location of the university you’re planning to enroll in and to check their credentials. The Department of Education also has a database of accredited schools.

When choosing the school to enroll in, you also better check on what exactly they’re known for and what’s their background. A simple background check does wonders in narrowing down your choice of schools. Your choice of degrees can also influence your choice.

And there you have it, the basics of getting an online college degree. It’s time to take the bull by the horns and improve your life through education.
