3. No travel time.
Those who choose online college often have a full- or part-time job to travel to and from on a daily basis. Studies show a strong association between commute time and well-being.
Forty-five percent of Americans commute, and the average commute time is almost 30 minutes long. If you’re in that group that means you’re already spending an hour of your day commuting to and from work.
Don’t add to the time spent away from family, friends, and doing things you really enjoy. Online college allows you to get to work immediately, which will increase your overall happiness levels.
