Financial Aid
History of Degrees The cost of a college education is a hurdle that is difficult for many to overcome. However, with the growing number of payment options, more and more individuals are able to pursue a higher education without worrying how they will pay for it. This year alone, the US Department of Education will award eighty three million dollars in financial assistance to those who wish to further their education. Financial aid can also be provided by private foundations and organizations, as well as employers who offer tuition assistance.

There is an abundance of grants and scholarships that are available to students; prerequisites for qualification for these methods of financial aid vary depending on the source. If you are unsure of what type of financial aid you qualify for, the internet is a great place to start. There are several websites dedicated to giving you all the information you need about qualifying for student aid, applying, and, if necessary, repaying after you have graduated.
Campus Education vs. Online Education
What Does a Degree Mean? Online or distance courses are becoming increasingly popular, and the number of schools that offer such programs is growing every year. While there are numerous positive aspects to online education, this method is not for everyone. Online learning requires a large amount of self-discipline and lone task & course work which can be difficult for individuals who have a hard time keeping themselves on track and focused.

Studying on campus is oftentimes a means of gathering and utilizing knowledge more effectively than learning online. While online education has resulted in enhanced mobility and the freedom to study whenever & wherever, nothing can replace the human interaction of taking traditional campus courses. Self-discipline has been cited as the most common barrier to online learning; many people can effectively learn more easily under the guidance and direction of their teachers.

It must also be noted that campus education is not only about the degree. Many students join colleges and universities for the social aspect including fraternities, sororities and sporting events, all of which go into shaping their personalities and future. There is a lack of social interaction involved with online learning, but it is up to you to decide which avenue is best. We recommend requesting information from one of our accredited schools today and start down the path of learning that fits you the best.
