November 19, 2019
Earning an associate degree online provides the opportunity to start working toward your future while saving college debt. If you are considering this route for yourself, there are many benefits to think about. But, it’s important to know where you are getting your education from, as not all online programs offer a credible education.
By choosing LBWCC for your Alabama online degree, you can expect a challenging curriculum that prepares you for a technical job or a bachelor’s degree. Here are some specific advantages you can expect from our online program.
Flexibility to Work
Some students need more flexibility than others. If you have a job or a family to raise, for example, an online associate degree program is a great option. You can take courses online instead of spending time driving back and forth to class and sitting in on lectures. In fact,some busy students say they perform better because they can study when it’s best for them, such as late nights or early mornings.
No longer do employers hesitate about hiring someone with an online degree. These degrees are now respected by employers, especially when they come from accredited institutions like LBWCC. We also have a positive reputation in the community thanks to our relationships with local employers and area universities.
Another benefit to online degree programs at LBWCC is that each student is treated as an individual. Our instructors want to see you succeed and will provide you with a syllabus, FAQs and other materials at the start of class. They also remain available for questions and concerns. Additionally, LBWCC provides various resources such as career coaching, resume writing and interview tips.
Quick Path to an Associate Degree
In general, online associates degree programs take two years to complete. However, some online programs are flexible and can be finished in just 15 months. To do this, each semester’s curriculum is condensed into a couple of months. This fast-paced curriculum can be demanding, but it’s a great option for students who want to get an online degree faster.
