This story came from my friend; she is a housewife with 2 children under 5 years old. Once, before she got married she was working as a clerk at a local bank. Then, she quit her day job after she had a baby. Now, after her kids have grown up, she wants to come back to work. However, she wants a job that fits with her desire and she wants a daily job that don't need her present all day long in office. She wants to be a remote worker or as a freelancer in a web design company. The kind of job that she dreams of for a long time.
Unfortunately, she lack of competency for working at web Design Company. Therefore, she must upgrade her educational degree. After a lot of consideration, she decided to go back to school to take a degree in web design. But she has another problem, if she study in a conventional collage, she must leave her children daycare to a nanny which is the last thing she consider.
After taking a lot of researching on the internet, she decides to take an online degree programs in web designs on a well-known collage in the USA. The power of the Internet helps her to pursuit her dreams. The dream of having a job as she desires by fulfilling its job competency.
If you have the same situation as like my friend does or you want to have a degree from an online university, I have several tips for you before choosing which university or college to register.
You must have a huge motivation for studying on an online schooling. It because there is no one will help or encourage you to study beside yourself. One good reason will motivated you to finish your study for obtain a degree that you have chosen before.
You have to know what your desire first before choosing a major. When you studying something with desire, you will love what you do. Then, study is not a burden for you. You will pass the studying years with fun and happiness.
School expenses or tuition is a major thing you have to consider before enroll into an online college/university. The money that you have sometimes doesn't fit with the tuition of the online degree programs that you want to enroll. However, now these days almost all-online college/university has student financial advisor. Their job is assisting the students that have enrolled but need a loan or scholarship to cover the school expenses. Usually, the advisor and the student, together looking after the financial institution at Federal Student Aid College Finder (http://studentaid2.ed.gov/gotocollege/collegefinder/advanced_find.asp )
You must carefully choose an online degree program, because a fake online college was defrauding many people. You must look at the list of accredited online degree program at National Accreditation Board.
Those are the things to consider before enrolled into online degree programs. You have to do a lot of research and ask so many questions to their customer service regarding to the program that you want to enroll.
