So I want to go back to school and take classes online but I am not too sure where to look for the best schools. Plus I need to find one with financial aid because theirs no way I can afford to pay for it myself. Anyone know of some schools?

i have a couple of friends that do the whole online school thing and they hate it they say the classes are twice as hard and you can never get help and the financial aid only pays for the school they dont give you the aid for bills books travel and other expenses like other financial aid for a reg school my advice is just check out your local tech school and go there

I have taken both online and on campus classes and I found that on campus ones where harder for me because I would have a hard to concentrating knowing there was other things I needed to be doing. So I would like to just take online courses so I could do my classes on my schedule each day.

Although online classes is better but I suggest you to join school and attend regular classes because regular classes is more cheaper than the online classes.In online classes you will get more tension and temptation and were as in regular classes you will feel free with your friends.......

im going back to school for Business information systems and i did online classes back in 2004 for business and i found the class to be way harder then the campus one due to teacher not getting back to you as quick as you would like as an person on person im doing an hybrid class which is campus once a week and online . Also i had my son early and had to many classes going on at once.

I think online schools are good, but i think its better to go to actual schools and attend classes there. Although, learning online on your own is really interesting, i think going to actual could really make you motivated to learn, plus if you're learning through online, you got a lot of temptations in front of you. I think it will be hard for you and i think it would really be costly. Thanks for the topic.

I have taken classes at a collage in the past but have found it to hard to balance out everything else I normally do during the day. It had became too stressful. So I just want to do them online if I can find one thats affordable.
