    This really depends on the online college. Do your research, and part of that might mean going to your city library and asking the research librarian for some help. You may find that they can give you some good information.

    If the online college is part of a regular, respected college then you should be fine. If they’re advertising degrees in a ridiculously short period of time, then beware. At the very least, you’ll find that the degree you end up with won’t have any credibility with future employees and you won’t have learned much. At the worst, you’ll be throwing your money and precious time away.

    The big question is: Are online schools any good for YOU? You have to be super-disciplined because you won’t have the reinforcement of going to class, having classmates and friends to keep you on track. You’ll have to set aside a certain amount of time each day to do it, and the people around you will have to respect that.

    I recommend you start up with a basic course on something that really interests you. If you find that you can do it, go for it! If not, remember it just means that you’re not ready for it at this exact time in your life, but who knows in a year or two down the road?

    Best of luck!!
