There are many accredited online universities today but spotting them out from the many online universities seems to be an issue for most students who wish to enroll for a distance learning program.
One of the many problems of enrolling in an online university is differentiating between accredited online universities and non-accredited ones. You may be wondering enrolling in a non-accredited online university affects your education. You will only know the negative effects when you graduates. How would you feel if employers should say your degree qualification is not valid? After going through the stress of studying, and also spending some bucks just to earn a university degree but just to find out that all this while, it has been nothing but a big joke? Bad right? That is why emphasis are always laid on applying to study in accredited online universities only whenever a student has determined to be distance learner in an online university.
After seeking and finding an accredited university, what comes up next is funding. Are you financially buoyant enough to fund your education till the very end? Are your parents/guidance able to sponsor your degree program till you graduates? If you are uncertain about it, it is very advisable to seek for scholarship at the very start of your degree program. You may still ask, “Why the start of my program? Why not wait till I get stuck and not able to pay my fees no more?” Well, most scholarship providers prefer to award their scholarships to freshmen in schools for reasons best known to them alone. Even at that, there are still scholarship programs that allows existing degree students to apply. But the question is “How lucky will you be in coming across such scholarship at your mid-degree level or almost ending degree program?”
Well, I will tell you of a scholarship open to both online and offline students but it is targeted at graduate students in only specific discipline.
