More and more students are electing to take classes online instead of doing it the old fashioned way in a classroom.
Affordable Colleges Online ranked Northern Michigan University number one in the state for the most affordable online degree programs.
"I think it continues to demonstrate that NMU is being very effecient with student dollars,?? said Joe Lubig, Associate Dean of the School of Education, Leadership, and Public Service. ??Then you put that up against the fact that we're affordable and a nationally accredited program. I don't know how you do any better than that.??
The university offers full master's degree programs in criminal justice and a number of education programs as well.
Students away from campus aren't the only ones taking advantage of the online programs; there are many students on campus opting for online courses.
"It's convenient for them. Some are working someplace or they just find it to be something that they are interested in doing," said Paul Lang, Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
The programs offered by NMU reach more than just students here in state. According to Lubig, students around the world have an opportunity to be a part of quality programs from the comfort of their own home, even if that home is in another country.
