With an increase in hybrid online learning, you may be wondering which type of school is right for you. Here is a list of questionsto think about when considering which school is right for you and your lifestyle:

  1. Decide if you are taking online courses to simply learn something new, like a continuing education class, or if you are completing a certification, undergraduate or graduate, or Ph.D. program.
  2. Which type of learning would you like? In-person, online, or a mix of both in-person and online?
  3. How long would you like your classes to be? A semester, six weeks, or complete on your own schedule?
  4. How fast would you like to earn that degree or complete that course?
  5. Make sure you compare schools – it is a good idea to go to the website of the school you’d like to attend, for example, the school of business, and read the FAQ section. This normally will give you a good idea of price, timing, expectations and other questions you may be needing to be answered.
  6. Call or reach out to an admissions representative. Much of this can be done via chat or email.
  7. Do you need scholarships or grants? Does this school have any student workers that can complete tasks online for extra money?
  8. Focus on what is right for you, your family, and your lifestyle. Getting into a school and then having to transfer to another school that fits your needs better can be stressful.
