There are many online colleges in Virginia to choose from, but Bluefield College offers the best of both worlds. Bluefield College, is both a traditional and online college in Virginia offering a variety of online degrees, including accelerated degree programs to students across the United States through our Online Degree Program.
Accreditation is key when getting your degree because employers, particularly HR departments know the value of accreditation. Potential candidates with degrees from non-accredited colleges or universities are likely to have their resumes more quickly discarded. The Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, the highest accreditation that can be earned, accredits Bluefield. In keeping with a liberal arts education, the curriculum of Bluefield College and our online courses emphasize a broad array of perspectives.
As an online Virginia college, Bluefield College offers 14 different distance learning undergraduate degrees, training students to achieve their career goals from anywhere. It doesn’t matter if you are in California or Virginia; classes are delivered in an online format with close contact with professors who genuinely care about your education. Each virtual classroom is designed to be engaging, challenging and flexible to all students’ schedules. Therefore, no matter your hectic schedule, the flexibility of Bluefield College’s online classes will enable you to learn from anywhere, any time.
All faculty members possess a combination of academic credentials, practical experience in the field, and a commitment to the Christian heritage of this proud Virginia college. Classes in our online degree programs are taught by the same faculty that teach on-campus classes, and the undergraduate degree that you earn through our online classes is the same one that on-campus students earn. Each student is important, and our skilled faculty and instructors ensure that the communication lines between student and teacher are very open.
The average cost of a private nonprofit four-year education in Virginia is $28,395.* Bluefield’s full-time tuition rates are very competitive with other in-state private colleges and universities, and our online tuition rates are lower, at $365 per credit hour. In addition to our competitive rates the state of Virginia also offers a great non-need based tuition grant for full-time private college or university students. The grant is $3,100 per year for undergraduates and $1,550 per year for graduate students in health professions. Therefore, if you have been a Virginia resident for over a year, you are eligible to apply and receive the $3,100 grant, which will go towards your yearly tuition.
