While many students come to Bluefield College every fall for the on campus college experience, this form of education may not be the most practical for all students. Maybe you have been out of school for a number of years. Maybe you started college years ago and are wanting to go back. Maybe you enlisted in the armed forces, have finished your time, and are looking to go to school so that you can find a degree that might fit into the career field of your choice.
Whatever the reason is, an online education may be the kind that suits you best. While a traditional college setting might require you to be on campus throughout the week and at certain times, an online program allows you to set your own schedule, work at a pace that is more suited to you, and continue working a full time job as you complete your undergraduate degree.
With fourteen different undergraduate degrees, from Criminal Justice to Human Services (and many others in between), you are sure to find something that will fit almost any career path that you decide to take.
We are also a very affordable option when it comes to an online, Christ-centered education. If you are a Virginia resident, you will have the option of using the Virginia Tuition Assistance Grant, Federal Pell Grant (if you qualify), and loans to help cover the cost of your education.
Depending on which studies you read, the earnings of degree holders versus non degree holders change. However, one thing that is consistent throughout all of the studies is this: those who complete their college degree will, over their lifetime (on average), make much more than those who do not obtain their degree.
Bluefield College is also a proud supporter of the United States armed forces and the veterans who have served. The Yellow Ribbon Program is designed to improve financial aid for veterans participating in the Post 9/11 GI Bill. To be eligible for the maximum benefit rate under the Yellow Ribbon Program, students must have served an aggregate 36 months of active duty after September 11, 2001, or been honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and served 30 continuous days after September 11, 2001, or be a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post 9/11 GI Bill.
So, if you are looking to start your degree with an online, Christ-centered, liberal arts college, please do not hesitate to contact our Office of Admissions and speak to one of our online admissions counselors.
