Your Questions about Online Education Answered

15 May

You’ve heard about online education and it seems like a great option for you. But you’re riddled with doubts and questions and you’re not sure where to get answers. In this article we’re going to try and address your doubts and answer some of the most important questions most people ask about online education.

Are online colleges accredited?

Of course they are! Just like standard on-campus colleges, online colleges also go through an evaluation process of their programs, faculty, and student services. This evaluation process determines whether the programs and student services offered by online colleges are of sound quality. At the end of the evaluation, accreditation is awarded to the schools that meet the high standards of the accrediting agency. If you wish to find out more about a college’s accreditation, check the U.S. Department of Education’s (USDE) database, which can be found on its website.

Will a future employer accept my online degree?

Have you wondered what makes online education popular? Well, it’s a feasible option for people who are tied down with familial or work responsibilities but wish to get educated anyway. Juggling work and home responsibilities with an online degree is no easy feat, but online degree students do it because they’re determined and focused on getting ahead in life. Now what employer wouldn’t want such qualities in their employees? Make sure you pursue your degree from an accredited online college, and most employers will accept your education credentials.

Is online education easier?

Online education is convenient. It gives you the option to choose a study time and location. But is it easy? It depends. If you are the kind of person who can prioritize your time well, give the necessary amount of attention to your program, and can study well by yourself, then you might very well find online education easy. Online education does take a commitment of time and effort; if your only reason for pursuing an online degree is because you think it’s easy, then you might want to reconsider.

Are online degrees reputable?

The credibility of an online degree can be determined by its accreditation. If an online college has been accredited by a recognized accrediting agency then you can rest assured that the quality of education you receive at the college will be sound. Besides, if you’re worried about a diploma mill, then there are certain tell-tale signs to look out for, lack of accreditation or a fake accreditation not recognized by the USDE being the biggest one.

Will I get the same amount of exposure as in a standard college?

A good online college, dedicated to providing the best education to its students, will do everything possible to ensure that the student takes away the most experience and knowledge from the program. Online colleges often provide externships, and require group projects and community assignments for this purpose.

How do I know which online college is right for me?

Once you have an idea about what subject and career you’d like to pursue, you should start researching colleges that provide these programs at the degree level of your choice. For instance, Independence University is an online college that offers associates, bachelors, and master’s degree programs in healthcare and business. Student reviews are a great way to learn about the finer aspects of a college. For instance, take a look at some Independence University student reviews. By and large, every student review of Independence University will discuss its financial aid assistance programs, accreditation, and student services.

If you think you’d make a good candidate for online education, explore all your options, read as many reviews as you can find, and speak to professionals within the field you’re interested in before you actually enroll.
