Press release from: Virginia College Online

The traditional, four-year university is quickly becoming a thing of the past. Now, higher education is available to anyone, regardless of lifestyle or location. Online degree programs offer great flexibility, allowing students to attend school any time, and from anywhere.

Phoenix, AZ December 22, 2006 -- It used to be that getting an education meant committing four years of your life to your schooling: living on or near campus and scheduling work and other engagements around your class times. With the modern-day availability of online degree programs, however, the dream of higher education can now be realized by more than just those who have the luxury of time.

"Most of our students choose an online experience because of the flexibility it provides," said Darrel Hanbury, Director of Admissions at Virginia College Online, an online school dedicated to helping students achieve their degrees quickly and easily. "Class work can be done 24 hours a day, seven days a week, from anywhere that has a quality Internet connection."

Online degree programs tend to attract students who are self-motivated and effective communicators, but don't have the luxury of planning their work schedule around their classes. The online study format allows them to choose when they check their classes and complete their coursework. Virginia College Online offers 18 degree programs in a variety of areas of study, including business, paralegal, health care, criminal justice, and IT, allowing each student to choose a program that matches his or her career goals. In addition, each of VC Online's Internet degree programs features a fast-track curriculum that is designed to help students finish their studies as quickly as possible.
