Online Degrees: Is It Right For Me?
“I don’t earn enough money”. “I wish I had more career options”. “Going back to school is impossible – I just don’t have the time”. Sound familiar? Turns out you’re in the majority. About 80% of today’s college students look just like you: 25+ with a job, financial challenges, a family, and a desire to earn more. Good news is… distance and online education options are more available – and more important – than ever. In 2013, Northern Arizona University became the very first public university to offer Competency Based Online Degree Programs. The competency-based model is ideal for non-traditional students like you. Students who have some credits but no degree. Students who learn quicker and don’t want to be kept behind by other students whose learning pace is slower. It’s Personalized Learning – you choose what you want to learn, when you want to learn it, at the pace that works for you and your busy life. Best of all, with the Competency-Based Program, you can even learn all you want in 6 months
