Earning An Online University Degree

By Mark Woodcock

Earning a University degree online can be an experience that is every bit as enriching,

interpersonal, and dynamic as attending college the traditional face−to−face way. A big misconception is
that online learning is impersonal. This isn't the case at all. Programs offered online present the same
opportunities for group work, independent study, and interpersonal communication as do traditional
methods of learning. In fact, attending college online helps to facilitate the independent learning
process, as well as developing time management skills. Attending college online takes just as much
commitment as the old−fashioned way of going to school, and the potential career and personal
benefits are just as great, if not greater.

There are many advantages for a student seeking a University degree to choose an online institution.
A student does not need to live locally to attend the school of choice. Attending all classes and
submitting coursework online eliminates the need for commuting or relocating. Earning an online
University degree is a convenient way to advance your education and training. A school may offer
more sections of popular courses, as well as night and weekend courses, which allows a student more
flexibility. This is an ideal situation for those who work full time and/or care for a family. Additionally, if
you are a student who is considering returning to school after several years, going to school online is a
perfect way to ease into the routine of class work and projects again, and can lessen the stress of
feeling the need to fit in with younger students. Besides, who wouldn't find it appealing to attend
college from the comforts of home?

It is possible to earn and online University degree in a fraction of the time that it would take to attend a
traditional college or University. Many online programs offer accelerated degree programs. This is ideal
if you are looking to advance your career, and are in a hurry to do so. Many online programs also offer
students the option of attending part time. These are often fully accredited programs, which is a benefit
for you in having your degree recognized by potential employers and various professional
organizations. Attending a fully accredited online University is also critical if you have credits from
previous college courses that you wish to transfer, or if you decide to transfer to another University
later on. It is important to check the credentials of the online institution to be sure of its accreditation.

If you are worried that you might not be able to afford an online University, there are options. Some
employers might offer to pay a portion or even all tuition and fees toward an employee receiving a
degree. Also, financial aid in the form of grants, loans, and even scholarships might be available to
you. Check with the particular online program of interest to see what financial options are available.

The type of degree earned at an online University is practically limitless. Aside from earning
Associate's, Bachelor's, and PhD degrees, professionals can continue their educations and stay up to
the minute in their fields. Online learning is no longer just for web designers and computer
programmers. You may study Business, Social Sciences, Criminal Justice, Humanities, Mathematics,
Human Resources, Fine Arts, and various Healthcare programs. Depending on the type of degree you
are seeking (graduate, for example), there may be certain academic requirements that you have to
fulfill to be able to attend. Make sure you do your research when trying to decide on an online
University.

With the prevalence of the Internet and technologies such as teleconferencing available today, it is


possible to come away from the experience of attending and online University not only with a degree,
but also being more in tune with technology, which has the potential to broaden your career
opportunities even more. Attending an online university is a legitimate, convenient, and flexible way for
you to advance you education, as well as your career and personal potential.

Online Paralegal Degree - Never Leave Your Home

By Nelson Widrow

Now there's few words that I like more than consortium and portal; and that is just one of the exciting
reasons why I'm getting all sorts of worked up for my university online degree. Are you thinking that I
could engage in other activities that had some semblance of a connection with the words consortium
and portal? I agree. But, I also want to get started on my career and don't have the time to go to
classes full time, because of my job.

The problem was that I have always been a little apprehensive of the programs that offered university
online degrees. This is where my two favorite words come in. I can actually get my degree, online, by
taking classes from major universities. Not simple institutions.

For example, If I used the Canadian Virtual University, or CVU, I have the option of taking classes from
13 established universities across Canada. There are several of these types of organizations, such as
the Global University Alliance. This is a consortium of nine different major universities from the U.S.,
Britain, New Zealand, Australia, and the Netherlands. As you have probably gathered by now the
Global University Alliance or CVU themselves have no classes to offer, but simply act as a portal for


                                                                                                            2

the major universities. This way your getting the benefits of a university online degree (classes at your
own pace and convenience, yet still offering personalized attention), but also having the satisfaction
that you're not sacrificing a quality education.
