  • It depends on the program. A lot of State Universities and even community colleges have online programs now. You're more likely to get financial aide to help cover the costs that way too.

  • It's the same but you don't have the same support you get by going into the classroom. Theres also lack of clinical training such as with medical assisting ect that is really helpful for on the job training.

  • I believe so, like someone else said, as long as they are accredited and programs may have to meet your state guidelines depending on what field you are studying. I go to an actual physical college here in town but through online classes.

  • Depends on the school - some have lost some or all of their accreditation. You're better off going to the online program through your local community college or university - it's always cheaper than the online only schools and you're less likely to have to buy textbooks that only work at that school and can't be resold.
