Posted Friday, Nov 7, 2008 by
Here are some tips to help you choose an online university degree program:
1. Choose a career path
The first thing you need to have nailed down in choosing a college program is the career path you’d like to pursue. Once you’ve done this, which is no small challenge, you can then check with your school of choice to find out how many classes are requirements and how many are actually electives.
2. Check in with the professionals
Check with the admissions office of your school of choice and make a list of the programs that interest you. Much of this requires that you understand your own skills and weaknesses if there are any that apply. By doing this, you can match programs that work to your advantage.
3. Get input from others
It never hurts to ask around and seek input from others. Other student can share their opinions on a class and the professor. It’s also good to note, that while opinions might be biased, you can eventually get an honest and well-rounded viewpoint on the questions that concern you.
4. Examine all the variables
It’s also a great idea to examine the social aspects, the school size, the school location, and kind of students it attracts. Financial assistance is important too. Meet with the right people to get clear picture of what the costs will be. Don’t be shy in the process. Even if you think you can’t afford it, ask someone!
And, the most important thing to remember, is that it’s not where you go to school, but what you do at school.
