There are others, too, for whom an online degree would be superior to sitting in college classrooms for two, four, six or eight years. Often there are economic circumstances that not only prevent young people from going to college, but require them even to leave high school to work for the greater good of the family. There are also young people with very highly developed skills in a certain area, like mechanical engineering, who do not see the logic in studying literature or history to get a four-year degree.
Many people - of all races, in all age groups and from all social classes - were unable for one reason or another to enter college at around 18, graduate at around 22 with a bachelor's degree and start working in their chosen field. It used to be that, once one reached 30 years old or so, it was deemed "too late" to return to school. Only within the last few years has a solution arrived on the scene for "late bloomers" and "retreads" - an online degree.
An online degree can be an associate's, bachelor's, master's or even a doctorate. There are literally hundreds of colleges, trade schools and training institutes on the Internet that are accredited, and whose degrees and certificates are respected and recognized by business, industry and the educational establishment. Furthermore, just about any subject that can be studied on campus can be taken online as well. In a few disciplines, some in-class or laboratory time may be required, but even these requirements are flexible and simple to manage with the help of school counselors.
Whether for someone coming straight out of high school, or a middle-aged person seeking a career change, setting sights on an online degree is a challenge that has a big payoff. The payoff comes in the form of increased lifetime earnings, enhanced reputation, greater employment opportunities and heightened self-respect. There are few things in life that bring as many positive results as working hard, studying diligently and bringing home that online degree.
