6 Ways to Reduce the Cost of an Online College Degree

3. Take some of your classes at a community college

Countering the Community College Stigma

Some online colleges refer their students to take some classes at a community college because it is the best option for the learning of that particular course. Taking some classes at a community college costs students less and, at the same time, allows them to transfer their credits to the university. If this option is available, you should take advantage of it to save some dollars.

4. Scholarships for online students

Online students are eligible for different scholarships. Some institutions have set aside some scholarships for online or adult learners. Eastern Kentucky University’s College of Justice and Safety is one of the institutions that offer scholarships for online students. It is currently awarding a $1,000 Distance Education Scholarship to nine students. 

Most scholarships are indeed available for full-time students, but it is worth checking. You might be eligible for several scholarships, and if you apply on time, you might be lucky. Apart from that, you also have to work hard to make sure you are one of the top students. That will make you eligible for the merit-based scholarships that might be available in your college. Here is our guide on how to pass online classes.
