How it Works

Will a degree really make a difference in my career?
In our increasingly competitive marketplace, employers put greater value on education than ever before. Today, college graduates earn an average of 75% more income than high school graduates. Over the course of a career that means a college graduate will average almost one million dollars more than a high school graduate. Individuals with a masterís degree will average of 110% more income than high school graduates.*

"Education is essential in getting a high-paying job.," according to the U.S. Department of Labor.** "In fact, for all but 1 of the 50 highest paying occupations, a college degree or higher is the most significant source of education or training."

Does the online format provide the same quality of education offered by a traditional campus?
Yes. Numerous studies have proven that distance learners perform as well or better than their on-campus counterparts. The book, The No Significant Difference Phenomenon, by Thomas L. Russell, cites 355 research reports, papers, and summaries dating back to 1928 that found no significant difference between distance learning and in-class learning. Where a difference was identified, it generally favored the distance-learning student. Similarly, an extensive study conducted by University of Phoenix comparing its own campus-based students to distance learners came to the same conclusion. In addition, it identified the current online format as the most effective vehicle for distance education.
