Going to an online college became popular because of the flexibility it offers students. Another of its top perks is that it is more affordable than traditional college or university.

Two of the most common excuses that cause students not to complete their college education is the lack of time and resources. An online degree program is inexpensive since students do not need to pay for room and board as compared to when they enroll in a traditional college or university. Usually, online students just have to pay for tuition and books.
