For most adults, online schools are scary because it is some new technology and they have common excuses we hear on a daily basis. Now is the time to dispel your fears about online education. These are the common excuses for avoiding online colleges.
I don’t have time for school
Most adults are unaware of how much time they waste. If you can schedule 1 hour of the day towards your education, then you can increase your potential for higher earnings. Invest 1 hour of your day to build up your education and work skills.
I have to take care of my family
Instead of going to the lecture hours scheduled by them, you can view lectures online at the time of your choosing. This leaves you plenty of time for your children and other flexible hour jobs. You can take a class when they are at school or when they are sleeping. You also don’t have to worry about making time for traffic, when the classroom is in your home.
It’s too expensive
Online schools offer financial aid just like any brick and mortar school. Qualify for scholarships, low-interest loans, and payment plans, available to students. Go at your own pace.
Online schools are a scam
When a school obtains accredited status, this means it has received the highest determination of being legitimate for any place of higher learning. The online schools listed have met the acceptable quality of standards. They are no more a scam than other accredited colleges.
No one else is going to school online
The survey of more than 2,500 colleges and universities nationwide finds approximately 3.94 million students were enrolled in at least one online course in fall 2007*. This opens a huge door for social networking with other likeminded professionals. You are not alone in your desire to go back to school.
