Is online learning right for you?


  1. Do you have access to a reliable high-speed internet connection when and where you need it? Online learning allows you the flexibility to complete your work at times that fit your needs to meet course deadlines; however, a reliable internet connection is required.
  2. Are you comfortable using computers and software?  Online learning will require you to be able to use computers and be able to use various software applications, including Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, email, etc.
  3. Are you self-motivated to complete course work and can you set a schedule and stick to it?  Completing an online course takes strong student discipline, and often requires more hours per week than face-to-face classes.
  4. Are you a good reader?  Research shows that good readers and writers perform better in online courses.
  5. Are you ready for a challenge?  If so, sign up for one of our fully online programs above!  We are ready to help you start your educational experience and realize your goals!
