Learn first hand from Chris of Davis, CA. She earned her distance learning bachelor degree in psychology at National university. Here's what she has to say:

I liked the convenience of the online classes. I could log on at any time and take my classes on my schedule.

Since there are regular forums and discussion groups with fellow students I felt well supported. If I became stuck on an assignment help was only a few clicks away.

All of my teachers were also very responsive to my e-mails.

On the down side, because we weren't in a classroom we often had to do additional assignments. It felt like I had more busy work to do than in a traditional classroom.

If I had attended a campus-based school, then this busy work would have been replaced with a lecture and a pop quiz. The busy work was a way of ensuring your participation in the class.

On the whole, however, the experience was great. Initially, some prospective employers did not regard my degree with the same respect as a typical college. But over the years it's become widely accepted.

I think it's a great option for adults who need to work full time. Especially, if you are also juggling a family.
