STUDENT TESTIMONIAL
Last summer, at the age of 17, I decided to open my own online clothing store. This means I work from home frequently, and wouldn’t be able to bring my business to school with me. I have experienced commuting to college for a course I took junior year in high school, and didn’t imagine myself doing that full-time. I had to face the challenging decision of experiencing a “normal” college life and doing something that would benefit my own career path.

After an extreme amount of thought, I decided that an online degree program would be the best fit for me. I’ll be starting in the fall and am ready to see how far my hard work and perseverance will take both me and my business!
