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:
- 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.
- Which type of learning would you like? In-person, online, or a mix of both in-person and online?
- How long would you like your classes to be? A semester, six weeks, or complete on your own schedule?
- How fast would you like to earn that degree or complete that course?
- 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.
- Call or reach out to an admissions representative. Much of this can be done via chat or email.
- Do you need scholarships or grants? Does this school have any student workers that can complete tasks online for extra money?
- 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.
