Online Students Not as Concerned About Proximity

Today’s students – looking for a great online experience – are becoming more comfortable attending programs that do not have a physical presence close by.

This report from the Learning House shows that fifty-four percent of online students attend an institution within 100 miles of where they live, showing a three-year trend of students increasingly willing to attend an online institution farther from their home.

Online programs with a physical presence are more desirable – but it seems to be more for the credibility vs. the need to actually connect on a regular basis.
