Online Bachelor Degree Programs: Are They Really Expensive?

Personal responsibilities, family, seniority, career advancement, and self-preservations are some of the common factors affecting one’s decision when considering going back to school. These eventually lead college aspirants to choose online bachelor degree programs over traditional schools.

Not long ago, online bachelor degree programs, hence, distance learning centers, were not in good terms with critics. Employers immediately dismiss applicants with degrees obtained online because they think it goes against the general rule in hiring workers. Traditional universities also felt ill at ease with online bachelor degree programs and bash them euphemistic yet derogatory remarks. They consider them as competition rather than help.

Times have changed. After enduring those years of prejudice, online bachelor degree programs are now widely accepted in small and big companies as well as in traditional universities. However, the expenses remain an important issue.

Recent statistics show that only more than 30% of college students were not able to graduate on time and most of them dropped out of college due to financial difficulties. Individuals who aim to finish their bachelor’s degree are always undeniably sensitive about the cost of college education. So, try online bachelor degree programs. Sometimes, financial pressure is the primary reason that led them away from the campus and even if life is better now monetarily, other priorities top the list. We will always have the mind of a consumer seeking value for money and being smart all the time. As much as possible, we want to save money to spend for other more important expenditures.

Are You Prepared For What These Cost?

Compared to the cost per credit in traditional universities, online bachelor degree programs indeed charge higher. Most people figure that $1000++ is still reasonable though. Get a table and find out the logic behind this claim.

Online bachelor degree programs can be taken on per semester and per courses basis. If you prefer the former, the computation is centered on the per credit hour. A complete bachelor course reaches up to 120 credit hour based on the standard 15 credit hours per semester. The number of credit hours depends on the course and its duration.

Undergraduates may choose to carry over their past credits to any online bachelor degree programs. It will help shorten the hours and perhaps years of studies. In most cases, students pay the course in full so that they can come back anytime after having to take a break due to various circumstances.  This will not have an impact on their payment. In traditional universities, such cases will require the students to pay for the extra cost.

If you want to maximize your online bachelor degree programs tuition and at the same time your learning experience, read these simple tips:

  • Inquire for financial aid. Accredited online bachelor degree programs also have access to financial aids provided the government and other private and non-profit institutions. If you want to gain discount, ask your online university for a FAFSA form.
  • Even if you have full control over your time, set a specific schedule when you can attend your online classes. This not only gives you time for your family but also help save electric bills. Try online bachelor degree programs.
  • Know web sites where you can get free textbooks and reference materials related to your course and save them in your computer for easier and faster browsing. You may also ask your friends about spare materials that you can use as back up reference.
  • Upon enrollment to any online bachelor degree programs, know what course materials come with it and if you will have access to the school’s online library. This will help you prepare for whatever extra expenses may arise.

Planning is important if you want to finish college through online bachelor degree programs. Everything must be set according to your lifestyle, budget and priorities to make sure you will not end up quitting temporarily or for good again.
