What is Distance Education?

Distance education is designed to give people options. It makes learning attainable for people from all walks of life. A great alternative to traditional, campus-based classes, distance education allows students to study on a more flexible basis.

    How can distance education benefit you?

  • Self-paced—Many distance education programs, including At-Home Professions' certificate programs, are self-paced. Go quickly through lessons you find easy and slow down on more complex material.
  • Study when you want, where you want—Your studies go anywhere you go. The portability of distance education is great if you move a lot or travel for work, and it's perfect for military families.
  • Get the promotion—Many employers choose distance education for employees who want to go back to school to further their career skills.
  • Supportive learning environment—One-on-one support from your instructor individualizes your learning experience.
  • Affordable tuition—Distance education often costs less because there is no campus to maintain, and no pricey athletic program to support. Your tuition goes directly to your education.
  • Save time and money—Save even more because you don't have to commute to class or take time away from work or family.
  • Career-focused—There are many options with distance learning, including career-specific certificate programs that are faster and more skill-based than traditional classroom education.
