Many courses are offered in an online environment to accommodate the needs of adult learners. Online courses allow learners to continue their educational goals without the physical restrictions of a traditional classroom setting. Online course work is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Assignments have a specific deadline, but the learner determines his/her own study schedule.

There are many factors to consider before enrolling in an online course. Review our recommendations to determine if online learning is for you. Contact us if you have any other questions not covered here.
