  • You mean do we know of any? I have been taking online classes in order to get my associates degree. There is a local college near me that offers fully online classes for people who have jobs and kids what have you, so I have been able to take all of my classes exclusively online and it has not been too god awful expensive.
    I looked into other colleges that are online like Westwood and Phoenix and you could get your degree through them also but it was expensive, the college in my county is only 50 dollars per credit hour so I have been able to pay for it all with a government pell grant.

  • Check your local community college first - they do full degrees online and they only cost about a quarter of what it does at the schools that are online only (Phoenix, etc). Plus they use real books instead of ones specific to the school so you can get them cheaper at places like instead of paying $200/book and having to buy it from the school.

  • check out the local community college first before any online college. You can take the pre requirements course online with much lower price with community college. The credits are good for most college and university arond the nation.

    If you are taking any biology classes, you need to think agin. It will be much better if you can have a teacher lecture and answer your questions. A real model to look and touch, you remember better when you have someone to tell you this and that.

  • Yes, I got my Master's online. It took 2 years. I started when my kids were 5 years old and 3 months old.
