There are many reasons to consider furthering your education online. Some of the biggest benefits of online college courses are:


  • Flexibility—you can work when you want, where you want. You can pace yourself and make the class work for you.
  • Lack of commute—you save time, money, and energy by not commuting to campus.
  • Cost—many online courses cost far less than traditional on-campus classes.
  • Networking Opportunities—meeting people from all over and making connections helps you build a widespread professional network that will last beyond your online course.
  • Effectiveness—many students find the interactive approach of online courses helps them learn material more thoroughly. Having the ability to work at your own pace may also help you learn better.
