No school today. No kid. No hubby. Just silence. Well, except for the pork that’s boiling for sinigang. It’s sooo cold out there, there’s nothing like hot and sour soup to rescue the day. Heh, funny how I’m talking about how cold it is — I’m in California, for crying out loud.
Since I had some time on my hand, thought I’d research this online university called Western Governors University (WGU). It was founded by the governors of 19 U.S. States and offers nationally and regionally accredited online bachelor’s and master’s degrees for busy adults like you and me. I love the flexibility of an online education but wonder if my lack of discipline would hurt me in the end. I guess I won’t know ’til I try, eh? Graduate school is definitely a part of my plans — just not sure which direction I’d like to go, whether that’s to stick with education (I want to follow my kid around, see *lol*) or pursue an online mba.
Don’t worry, WGU is nationally, regionally, NCATE, and CCNE accredited. Tuition is very affordable — they don’t charge you per course or per credit, only a flat rate every term. Need financial aid? Not to worry, the Department of Education has approved WGU in offering financial aid assistance to its students. That’s music to my ears — I’ve got bad enough loans from my undergrad work as it is!
