Is Distance Learning For Me?
While flexibly scheduled, Distance Education courses are not self-paced; they run on the same semester schedule as on-campus, and have deadlines for completing assignments and exams.
Distance education is not for everyone. All distance learning courses require a higher level of self-motivation and self-discipline. Distance education also requires the ability to read and write independently. Much of the content is presented in written form.
Quality... Course content is equal to on-campus courses!
Flexible... Classes are available whenever and wherever you need!
Transferable... Just like on-campus!
