Tip of the Week

Everything is an investmet on time, even your bachelors degree. When reviewing your options for online bachelors degree programs, take into consideration everything from age to socioeconomic status to current family or job commitments. While an online degree may take less time, an online degree is often cost effective and time effective. An online degree may give you time to work during the day or enjoy an internship opportunity that helps advance your career. Consider the following questions before making your decision:

How much of a "college" experience am I looking for? How many hours a week do I already work and is it feasible for me to go back to school full-time? This would require loans that must be paid back following graduation.How many years do I want to give myself to complete my degree? This will be dependent on your financial situation, job need(s) timeline, interim experiences, and even age.What is my flexibility in terms of time and finances?
These are just a few questions to get you started. No matter what you decide, it's a good idea to write down your career plans and goals so that you feel accomplished at the end of your degree when you have followed-through on something you have established for yourself!
