The threat of catching the virus, the need for social distancing and the closing of many campuses through the fall has left students and their parents unsure about what to do next.
A fully online degree option may be the best way for many students to stay on track and remain safe during this pandemic. However, with confusion surrounding online instruction, students and parents alike have questions and concerns about pursuing an online education. It’s important to know the difference between the sudden, emergency attempt at online instruction and a degree program that was purposefully designed to be entirely online.
