Yes, Busy Moms Can Earn a College Degree! Here’s How…

I have a bachelor’s degree in business administration, but always wish I had stayed in college to get my master’s degree. Over the past twenty-some years since graduation, I’ve considered going back to college, but with four children and the need to earn a living, it always got put on the back burner. But now that it’s becoming easier and more acceptable to earn a degree online, the possibility of getting my master’s is becoming much more of a reality. I recently learned about American Public University (APU), which offers 100% online degrees -- an extremely attractive option to busy moms like me! Here are some of the advantages of earning a degree through APU:

Flexibility and Variety: They offer more than 100 online degrees and certificates, and students can do their coursework on their own time and schedule. Associate’s, bachelor’s, and master’s degrees are available in a wide variety of fields.

Affordability: APU’s undergraduate tuition is just $750 for a 3-credit course and $900 for a graduate course. In fact, APU’s overall cost for undergraduate tuition, fees and books is $21 per semester hour less than the average four-year public university. They also offer a Book Grant program to help with the cost of course materials, as well as a transfer credit program.

Quality and Credibility: If you have a four-year degree, you can expect to earn, on average, over $800,000 more over your lifetime than someone with only a high school diploma. Have a higher degree? You may earn over $1 million more than a high school grad in your lifetime. APU is a member of the American Public University System, recognized as a leading education provider by a large number of military, federal, private and public sector employers. APU’s sister institution, the American Military University, is the #1 education provider to the US military.
