According to the Sloan Consortium, nearly 30 percent of all college and university students take at least one course online. Web-based programs can be beneficial to learners who have scheduling conflicts, full-time jobs or transportation challenges.
Schools such as Post University in Connecticut offer traditional campus-based courses as well as distance and blended learning options. Through Post University Online's Accelerated Degree Program, students can complete their undergraduate or graduate degree from an accredited, traditional four-year university at a time and place that is convenient.
The highly interactive online programs are taught by professors who are seasoned professionals in the fields they teach and experts at combining theory and practice.
At Post University, individuals can transfer up to 90 previously earned credits to a bachelor's degree program, transfer as many as nine qualifying graduate credits toward a master's degree program, and receive undergraduate credits for military and life experience. In addition, those who have earned associate's degrees can transfer all 60 credits to a bachelor's degree in the same major.
Online students have access to the same support services as full-time, on-campus learners, including career services and the counseling center.
