As a busy adult, going back to school – whether it’s to earn your college degree or learn a new skill in a career diploma program – is something you know can help you advance your career and reach your personal and financial goals. A traditional college or technical school, however, may not fit your needs; that’s where online education comes in. More and more, online education is becoming the go-to way to further your education, but is it right for you? Here are three reasons why going back to school with Ashworth College can be your best option.

Ashworth College is affordable

Furthering your education can be expensive at a traditional college or technical school. But at Ashworth, it doesn’t have to be! If you’re worried about expensive student loans or don’t qualify for student aid but still want to get the training and education you need, Ashworth College offers low tuition costs and monthly payment options so you can make school work for your budget. Here’s how it works:

  • You can choose to pay for your program in full. By making a one-time payment on your degree or diploma program, you’ll save money on tuition and won’t have to worry about monthly payments.
  • You can start studying with a monthly payment plan. While we strive to make our tuition as affordable as possible, we do understand that many students can’t pay the full tuition all once. That’s why we offer payment plans to fit your budget. For most programs, college and career, you can make an initial payment to get started and then set up monthly payments as low as $59 per month.
  • No matter what payment option you choose, your tuition covers the cost of your classes, textbooks, and workbooks that are included in your program.

Ashworth College online classes are flexible and self-paced

Going back to school in-person can mean trying to squeeze classes and assignments into your already packed schedule. You’re also limited to set semester start dates and enrollment periods, which means you may have to wait a while to take the next steps toward earning your degree or diploma. But with an online school like Ashworth College, you don’t have to wait to enroll or start your classes! You can start the moment you’re ready and work on your classes around your schedule, instead of trying to make your schedule work for your classes.

Through self-paced classes and assignments with no set due dates, you can reach your goals your way. All of Ashworth’s programs, from bachelor’s degrees to career certificates, are designed to allow you to work on lessons and submit assignments 24/7, from wherever you are. Your classes are also broken down into easy-to-digest study guides and lessons, so you approach your studies in the way that works for you. Whether that means taking an hour after work to read a few chapters or dedicating one day a week to your studies, you can learn and build your skills in a way that ensures you’ll remember and retain the information you learn.

Ashworth College is accredited

No matter where you’re considering going to school, the most important thing to know is whether or not the classes you’re taking are accredited. Accreditation ensures that schools – online and traditional campuses – meet certain requirements and provide students with an education that meets national and state standards. Ashworth College’s courses are accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Committee (DEAC) and authorized by the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission to offer instruction in career programs, associate, and bachelor’s degree programs. When you graduate from your program, you’ll have a recognized degree that you can highlight on your resume, showing future employers that you’ve got the skills they may be looking for.
