One of the toughest things about getting an education is finding the right college to attend.
You have so many factors to consider, including cost, location, the campus, classes offered, degrees and programs, whether courses can be taken online, and the list goes on.
For recent high school graduates and professionals alike, we encourage you to explore your options at Excelsior College because so many degree programs and majors are offered. Plus, you can take classes and work at the same time because online courses are offered every eight weeks to help fit into your busy schedule. A good, healthy balance is so important for success.
As an example of a path to a degree program, students interested in the medical field can enter the Excelsior College Nursing program, which is accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing.
It’s also important to note that different nursing programs are offered, such as an associate degree in Nursing, BS in Nursing for RNs and RN to MS in Nursing, or Master of Science in Nursing. No matter what level you’re starting at or want to complete, a program is available.
Options are invaluable when choosing the right college.
Remember that, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, about 80 percent of students change their major at least once.
Don’t want to be a nurse? That’s perfectly fine, because this college offers many other educational routes and different degree levels, from associate to bachelor’s to master’s degrees. Realistically, you could earn one of these degrees while working full time, and many students take that route because online classes are offered, which isn’t the case at every university or program.
Online classes offer many benefits.
For starters, online classes can be taken from anywhere in the world (as long as you have an internet connection) so you aren’t tied down to one location. That’s not the case if you take the traditional route of being an on-campus student. This also means you won’t have a commute, saving you money on gas and parking, not to mention a lot of time. Comfort and flexibility are important in the classroom, and online learning helps with those areas as you create your learning environment and can learn anywhere you want. The benefits could go on and on.
Students love to have options, and online courses provide them.
We invite you to explore your degree options at Excelsior College, no matter what degree you want to pursue. An affordable option is waiting for you in the program and major of your choice.
The ultimate perk, as stated earlier, is that eight-week classes are provided, allowing you to learn at a fast yet reasonable pace and from the convenience of your own home. Also, you don’t have to quit your job or make a drastic moving decision, nor do you have to attend in-person classes every day. With online classes, you set yourself up for success by creating a learning environment that you prefer and best learn in.
Talking to an admissions counselor is always helpful to explore your dreams and goals and to see what program best fits your wants and needs. Because so many degree options are available, you and your counselor might decide it’s best for you to study different fields before declaring a major, which is possible and also common among college students.
Excelsior College gives people the opportunity to follow their dreams, no matter what they want to pursue. We invite you to explore your degree options today.
