Can anyone tell me if this is a good school to do an online associates program?



Im so lost on this whole going to school thing, but i know its something i need to do and I know I need something strickly online.



What Im wondering is it a school where I could possibly get a job when finished?



Or any suggestions on where to look into?

    I agree.

    Call places where you would like to use your degree at and see if they would accept a degree from there. I know plenty of people with degrees from online schools that can't get jobs with them.


    Quoting WithHope:

    From a hiring perspective online degrees, regardless of the school are questionable. Your best bet for a marketable degree is to find an online program at a brick and mortar college.

    I was straight up with the advisor when asked this sane question I have no idea, Ive never had an answer for that question. So after talking awhile it was suggested to consider medical management. Idk if its good but the description looks good. (but im sure they are made to look good, so i still dont know if that is something practicle.

    i hear alot of the same story, a person went and got some sorta higher education but it did them nooo good.


    also i thought of something from another poster about it being hard to get a job from an online schooling degree.... wouldnt it be good bc it shows self motivation, time management and such? IDK. i really cant devote time to commuting to a set time and location. yes i am required to schedual 2hrs for an online eminar a week (an hour per class) but still, thats not as much as havibg to devote all that clasd tome going to a physical loxation.



    like i said i am sooo lost on what to do. i just know i needmore. ill never get ahead working min. wage.

    A college in an actual building on a campus. There are tons of schools that offer online classes. I took online classes through my local community college.

    If you don't know what you want to do I would recommend taking basic classes through a local community college online. Most of the online schools charge tons & you will end up with a bunch of college loans & still not knowing what to do as far as a degree. If you go to a local community college & you qualify for a pell grant then you shouldn't have much (if any) money to pay out of pocket.
