Online classes are no longer rare. In fact, more than 80% of traditional colleges are now offering
online courses. But are all advertised online classes smart to take? Here are some things to check
for before enrolling in an online program:
Check if the course is accredited:
Employers are willing to accept online degrees as long as the school is accredited. Make sure
that the accreditation is legitimate too. Regional accreditation is the best, but national
accreditation is also good. Credits for unaccredited courses cannot be transferred, rendering the
whole effort fruitless. Generally accredited classes are more difficult than ones that are not, but
for all your online class problems, you can call us.
Check about their support system:
It’s normal and common for you to need help. This might mean technical help or career
placement services support. Make sure your school clearly indicates ways it can help. Look out
for pushy career counselors, though. This might mean a scam.
Check stats of the school:
Numbers related to student completion rate, student loan default rate, employment rate, etc gives
a fair idea about the reputation of the college. Low completion rates indicate that the college isn’t
really serious about its academic quality, whereas high student loan default percentage indicates
that the college offers poor financial aid advice. A good employment rate suggests that
employers value courses offered by the college.
Online learning is generally more flexible, but there are still a lot of assignments. If you find
yourself stressed because of lack of time, call us and ask: ‘Can you do my homework?’ Or,
‘Can you take my online test for me?’
