Choose a college
This is the second in a three-part series on how to do your research in selecting an online college. Part 1 dealt with how to start your search, and part 3 will explain what your research will show you about WGU as an online option. Part 3 will be posted later this week.
Returning to school is a major life decision, and choosing the right university for you calls for doing some serious research. If you’re looking to attend an online university, you’re going to want to spend some time exploring the options out there.
This week, we’ve been exploring how to do your homework before enrolling in any university. If you haven’t already, read the first steps to choosing an online college from yesterday’s post.
Questions to ask when selecting an online university
There are many sources you should look to for answers to your questions about online degree programs—the enrollment offices at the universities you are considering are a critical source of information, but you should also look to Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc., to learn what students, graduates, employers, and academic experts have to say about the school.
Tomorrow’s post will look at the things you’ll learn about WGU as you do your research. WGU is not the right fit for everyone; our mission is to make sure students find the right degree programs for their needs. To continue, click here.
