Gone are the days when the only way to get an education was to arrive at a classroom. Online learning colleges have taken over the academic landscape. What was once traditional, in-person learning is now remote and accessible.
That’s excellent news for those who often find they have to move with little warning — like every military spouse throughout America.
The National Center of Education Statistics reports that by the fall of 2020, 75% of all undergraduate students were enrolled in some form of distance learning. That’s a 95% increase from the previous year. Remote classrooms are now the usual way of gaining the skills needed to start a career you’ve always wanted.
However, knowing what to look for in an online college can be challenging. Seek a learning institution with a good reputation to ensure your hard work gets you the education you need and deserve. Here are things to look for as you determine your best options in the best online learning schools.
For military spouses interested in remote careers that can grow no matter where in the world a family is based, it makes sense to work with an online training school. Milspouses may be eligible for up to $4,000 in scholarship funds from the U.S. Department of Defense to take certificate, license, or associate degree programs.
Online learning has many benefits, including:
Flexible for better time management
Support teams that help students succeed
Classes for careers with predicted job growth
