Montgomery College to Offer First Two Completely Online Degree Programs Business and Information Systems Programs Launch Fall 2014 Semester
Beginning this fall, Montgomery College will offer two fully online degree programs, giving students the opportunity to earn associate’s degrees in two of its most popular programs, business and information systems, without ever having to attend a class in person. The fall semester at Montgomery College begins August 25, 2014. “Montgomery College is committed to providing students with opportunities to achieve higher education in an accessible environment, and we are thrilled to offer the highest level of flexibility with these new online degrees,” said Dr. Sanjay Rai, senior vice president for Academic Affairs. “Now, parents, career changers and full-time workers can balance their many responsibilities while earning their degrees in a friendly online format from exemplary faculty, while still enjoying the benefits of the College’s superior support services and low tuition costs.” Although the student experience is vastly different online than in the classroom, the high standard of a Montgomery College education will remain the same. These two online programs will follow the same curriculum as the traditional degree programs, at the same cost, and will be taught by the same expert faculty that teach on campus. All instructors have been trained and certified in online quality assurance. Furthermore, online degree students have the opportunity to take advantage of the College’s “E-resources” to support their studies or come in person to any campus to use the academic support centers, libraries and advising centers.
Business and information systems are among the most in-demand degree programs nationally and Montgomery College is committed to providing flexible options that broaden access to programs that are critically needed by employers.
