Students involved in the online program communicate via email, web-based forum discussions and chats. They have access to all student services via the web, email, and telephone. They will use textbooks, online resources, online e-books and have all the same guidance and expectations as traditional students. The one thing they will have that traditional student do not is flexibility. With rolling enrollment for online classes and the ability to do classes in their own time full time working adults and other nontraditional students can complete their coursework in their time frame and from the comfort of their own homes.
Each school campus has been authorized by the state in which it is located. Most have been accredited by various regional accrediting agencies or are in the process of becoming accredited. All schools are eligible to participate in federal student financial aid programs. The federal financial aid includes various student and parent loans, grants (such as the Pell Grant) and work-study. There are scholarships, alternative student loan programs and employer tuition reimbursement programs available for qualifying students. Students are encouraged to work with their financial aid counselors to find the best resources to finance their education. There are also special programs for veterans and active duty military personnel.
