Filed under: Online Learning News — Ray Schroeder @ 12:05 am


Graduate students should ensure online programs offer substantial student services. While many online programs are ramping up their support services for students, experts say many others have a long way to go before they rival the offerings of their on-campus counterparts. Students considering an online graduate degree should explore whether the program offers tutoring, advising, library services and career counseling, says Susan Aldridge, a senior fellow at the American Association of State Colleges and Universities. Ideally, she says, those services would be available and accessible to students outside of traditional working hours. “If the support systems for the online students are only 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., they aren’t that useful to the online students,” she says.
