Why Go Online for Education

Online education, a service not available 10 years ago, has made getting your degree easier. Unlike traditional classroom courses, online courses allow you the ability to take college classes when there are no traditional universities in your area, your operational tempo doesn't allow you to attend classes regularly, or if you are deployed at sea or overseas, where classrooms simply do not exist. In addition, since online classes are not subject to classroom and professor scheduling, they can be offered year round and in many cases enrollment is every 5-8 weeks, which will allow you to take more courses over a given period than you would if you were attending a traditional university.

Online courses are offered through a number of venues. 

Finally, lest you think that online courses are only good for general education requirements only, understand that many traditional universities offer upper division as well as post-graduate courses, and dedicated online universities offer complete undergrad and graduate degree programs in a wide variety of subjects.

So take a look at on line schooling. It's faster than traditional schooling, it's cheaper, and it's available year round.
