Twenty years ago, a college education almost always meant dorm rooms and football games. Every part of our lives has been impacted now by technology … so it shouldn't surprise you that education has been brought into the 21st century by technological advances. More Americans are turning away from traditional universities and choosing distance education instead.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, enrollment in distance education courses has more than doubled since 2000. In the past, distance learning meant taking courses through audio or video feeds, but today's technology has allowed schools to offer more and more courses using the Internet. This new distance learning model is ideal for anyone that moves frequently or those whose schedules simply make it difficult to attend traditional classes.
Why Choose Distance Education?
- Many find their lives revolving around family and jobs, and college plans have to be put on hold. With distance education, you can find time to spend with your family, excel in your career and earn your degree.
- Distance learning gives you the flexibility to get an education while working a full time job. You can study and do homework whenever you can fit it in.
- Your commute is as easy as a click of the mouse.
- All of your educational needs – from taking tests to communicating with professors and advisors – can be met online.
Grantham's online degree programs are purposely different from some other online degree programs. Grantham has modeled its online programs so they can be completed from anywhere Internet access is available. Grantham does not require students to log-on to the Internet at specific times or days or to appear at the University for exams.
Your AFA Scholarship can be used for one of the many degrees offered by Grantham University. Please visit www.grantham.edu and hover over the academics tab for a list of degrees.
Important Note to Active Duty: If you're currently active duty, Grantham already provides scholarships to cover what your military tuition assistance doesn't cover. Therefore, this AFA scholarship is not needed. Contact Grantham directly at 1-800-955-2527 or visit http://www.grantham.edu/tuition/military-programs/military-scholarship-program-service-members/.
