Achieve Your College Degree through Accredited Online Distance Learning Courses

Share

 

In 2008, I’d like to share my enthusiasm for online education and hope to inspire other women to complete their college degrees.

I guess I was ahead of my time ~ before online and non-traditional studies really took off.

I firmly feel that finishing one’s college education gives you a heads-up advantage in today’s world ~ online courses gave me the confidence to start my online Bonanza Booth store where I sell vintage sewing patterns.

Just a bit of short history ~ I marched off to college in the early ’70s with the rest of my friends. My then boyfriend (now DH) was off to school in Milwaukee, and I was at an all-women’s college in Massachusetts. We each lasted one year at those schools and came home. Then it was in and out of various colleges, FT, PT, and eventually we got engaged and went to work FT to save money to get married. End of college studies. Life got in the way.

Over the years, after working in various administrative assistant jobs, it had been in the back of my mind that I really wanted to finish my degree. By that time 20 years later, I had a FT job, house, 2 young kids & thought ‘how in the world am I ever going to do this?’ Then I happened upon an ad for adults to complete their degrees through non-traditional methods, including online, correspondence & video courses at Charter Oak State College.

Charter Oak accepts students from all 50 states. All my credits from various institutions were evaluated, accepted and I was assigned to an Advisor who worked with me to recommend courses I needed to graduate with an Associates Degree. I then went on to finish my B.S. in Business Administration!
