​An online associate degree program might not be a fit for everybody, but experts say there are benefits to choosing this route to an education. In a lot of cases, prospective students may want a degree but are unsure if they will have time for a bachelor’s, says Megan Foster, an admissions counselor at Pennsylvania State University—World Campus. “They’ll start with an associate’s, get that credential a little bit quicker to help them get a bump up in their job, and then they might consider a bachelor’s afterwards,” Foster says. In the 2014-2015 school year, the number of students enrolled in online classes at community colleges continued to rise, increasing by 4.7 percent – the same rate as the previous year, according to a 2015 survey ​by the Instructional Technology Council, which is affiliated with the American Association of Community Colleges.
