The 3 Mistakes students should avoid when choosing an online degree program
1. Limiting the search to only local options
Many students prefer choosing an online program that is close to home. The reason for this is because some students want to get access to on-campus resources. There is nothing wrong with choosing an online degree program that is close to home, but you should make this decision consciously. You should not limit yourself. Today’s technology allows online students to choose a school that is hundreds or thousands of miles away from home.
Why opt for an online degree program from a local school that is now well known when you have a chance to pick one of the leading schools? Accreditation matters. Instead of looking for an online degree program that is close to you, look for its accreditation. It is much better if you pick an online degree program that is thousands of miles away from your home but has the best accreditation instead of a local college that has not been accredited by a known accrediting agency.
