"​The thought of going back to college scared me. I have 5 children and knew it was going to be a challenge.
The online capability made it possible for me AND my family! My children were able to see me succeed at school and push to finish something that was so important to me. 
I also love the organized modules that I was able to work through. The professors were always available to answer questions or provide feedback.
Online courses allowed me the opportunity to plan study time around the rest of my day – not the other way around. I worked at my convenience as the course material was always online."
