Thinking About Cost: What Matters

Online classes can be an excellent option for students looking to further their education. In addition to a non-existent commute, the flexibility offered by online courses gives busy professionals the opportunity to further their education while continuing to work. Cost-saving benefits of online classes include:


Online classes reduce or eliminate commuting time. This eliminates transportation costs and leaves more time for work, study, family and friends. Students can also choose to earn their degree from anywhere– possibly reducing the cost of moving in order to attend school. This includes options of living where the cost of living is lower.  For prospective students abroad, the OBBA program allows you to attain a US degree without travel expenditures or needing a visa.


Unlike classes in a traditional program, online classes typically do not require students to adhere to a specific schedule. This affords working students the choice to keep their full-time job rather than take a potential reduction in pay or quit their job all together.


Students who pursue a full time degree often forfeit significant simultaneous income.  Conversely, our online students can keep their work schedules and routines that they had before and not give up their income. While they have to make time for studying and exams, they can keep disruptions to their personal and professional lives to a minimum.

Digital materials:

University textbooks can be expensive. While there are many ways to cut costs on reading materials in a traditional program, online degrees sometimes have more economical options. Many online classes make reading materials available in a digital format, which can be somewhat less costly than traditional texts.
