The Problem With Online Education

Going back to college is time consuming and expensive, two things that most people returning can’t afford. You have a life, a family, pets, a job – you can’t afford to give it all up, move into a dorm and take out a mountain of student loans to get by. Online programs can be a life saver when you’re juggling a life, but you should be careful about what kinds of schools you sign up with.

There are plenty of legitimate and budget friendly online options for the new or returning college student, most of which will be connected to a local community college or brick and mortar university. There are even some law schools you can attend that are entirely online for those looking to go through graduate programs. But there are also many private, for-profit institutes that are more than willing to take your money and give you almost nothing in return.
