Working adults and others who are not able to travel to campus may find many advantages by enrolling in an online degree or certificate program. Advantages include reduction in travel expense, a study schedule based on an individual's work and family life, and reduced tuition rates that do not include on-campus health and recreation center fees. Although online programs may provide opportunities for distant learners and working adults, rigor and quality of courses are comparable to those offered through campus classes. Many students prefer learning online and report a more productive and enjoyable learning experience compared to traditional classroom courses. Prospective students may assess their own learning preferences through the self-evaluation resources provided below.
