1. I’m too old

By enrolling in an online program, you don’t have to feel uncomfortable by your “younger” peers. While it’s certainly not a big deal to be an mature student in today’s educational environment, if you still feel wary, being online will eliminate that concern.

If on the other hand, you feel that your age will hinder your ability to master the subject matter, then remember that pursuing your education online allows you to set your own pace. You’ll be able to take as few or as many modules as you feel comfortable with. This is an incredible advantage to enrolling in one of our online programs.

2. The cost

One of the benefits of our online programs is the flexibility. This makes it easier on your finances in two ways. First, if you can only afford to take one course, you can do so with no problem since you aren’t required to carry a minimum course load. Secondly, if you need to work, studying online makes it feasible to manage both a job and school.

There are also financial aid and student loan programs which can assist you in paying for your courses provided you qualify.
