Flexible, Economical Online Classes at Rasmussen College

People are busier than ever, and are having difficulty balancing work, family, and rest. Many want to go back to school, but it seems impossible. They know career advancement is not likely to happen without a degree. Earning more money is a priority, but finding the time to attend school on campus at a set time on specific days is just not feasible. What's the solution?

Enter Rasmussen College's engaging online learning curriculum. Classes can be taken anywhere, and anytime, using a laptop and an Internet connection. Busy people are choosing to take online courses for a number of reasons, and find online classes fit more easily into their lifestyle than a brick-and-mortar school. You, too, can attend online classes in the following ways:

  • At an Internet café.
  • Early in the morning, while your family sleeps.
  • Late at night, while your family sleeps.
  • During lunch.
  • On the weekends.


Taking online classes means you no longer have to map out each day according to the demands of your employer and family. If the only free time you have is 5:00 am to 7:00 am, you can "attend" your online course during this time. No longer are you forced to squeeze a classroom schedule into your life at inconvenient times. Attend class when you have the time, even if it's from 11:00 pm to 1:00 am.

Save Money and Time

With the high price of gas, everybody is looking for ways to cut down on fuel expenses. If you take online courses, that cost is eliminated, along with parking fees. Plus, there's less wear and tear on your car. Wouldn't it be wonderful to be productive studying, instead of commuting back and forth to school? With Rasmussen's engaging online learning curriculum, this is not a dream, but a very real possibility.

No Geographical Ties

If you live seventy-five miles away from the nearest college, there's no need to fret. Online courses are the way to go. If your job suddenly transfers you to another state mid-semester, you can avoid the hassle of transferring colleges; just log on to your class and no one will guess that you've moved to another location.

No Clashes Between Work and School

Is your boss demanding mandatory overtime? Are your work shifts always changing? You'll never miss a class if you're an online student.

Less Expensive

Online classes utilize eBooks, instead of expensive traditional books. In addition, some online courses cost less than the same on-campus courses due to less overhead and administrative costs. We're happy to pass our savings on to our students.

Less Intimidating

It can be a bit nerve-wracking to speak in front of strangers in a classroom. Some online students prefer to interact without having people staring at them. You'll have the opportunity to connect with your fellow students, Rasmussen faculty, and guest speakers in a much less intimidating environment.
