Online Colleges Offer More Than Diplomas

|(openPR) - Leading the way for online colleges in offering more and better services is Virginia College Online.
February 27, 2007 Phoenix, AZ -- Online colleges all offer degree programs and the tuition bill that goes with it, but with so much competition for students some are now offering much more. Today's best online colleges are catering to the needs of the student beyond the classroom by supplying career counseling, financial aid and a number of other services usually only found at more traditional campus-based universities.
Stan Banks, President of Virginia College Online, says, “The best online colleges have the resources in place to offer their students a complete package of services. We have a full financial aid department to assist students through the process, including experts on alternative educational funding such as the Montgomery GI Bill. Every student who applies to Virginia College Online will have a financial aid advisor to help him or her through the maze of obtaining loans, grants and scholarships.”
Today's better online colleges don't stop helping students once the last class is completed. Career services include assistance with resume writing, job-seeking techniques and how to interview well. At Virginia College Online, all of these services are offered in addition to job placement assistance.
“An online education shouldn't be an impersonal experience that is just about what's in the curricula. Online degrees are challenging, so the colleges that offer them should have the support resources in place every step of the way for the students when they need them. At Virginia College Online, we pride ourselves on offering that kind of support,” declares Banks.
