If you’re thinking about starting or finishing your college degree and keep putting it off because you weren’t near a campus or thought you didn’t have time, consider getting an online degree. It can save time and money as well as give you needed flexibility. With a degree in hand, you’ll expand your civilian career opportunities and increase the likelihood of getting higher pay.
According to Military.com, many online courses and degree programs are developed specifically to provide the flexibility needed by those who can’t sit in a classroom and don’t have traditional schedules. In fact, thousands of active duty, single parent, even deployed military members earn their college degrees each year through online education. Most schools offer online programs that range from Associates to Masters degrees and, depending on the course, may take as little as 1-2 hours a day, 3 days a week. There are even universities that are 100% online.
