Are you headed to college in a few weeks?
If so, chances are that you’re not thinking about the college courses that you’ll take when you hit campus again. But if you stop to think about it, chances are that you’re experiencing some low-level anxiety already about one or two of the courses that are on your plate. The courses that are causing you a little worry right now could be Algebra, Calculus, Physics, Writing . . . or something else entirely. Heck, only you know what’s scaring you the most. Who are we to say?
But even though we don’t presume to know which courses are weighing on your mind right now, we do have a suggestion for you.
Why Not Take those Courses Online Right Now?
If an upcoming course is scaring you, why not take it online right now? Here are some reasons why it’s a great idea . . .
- You can take the course to prepare for when the course really counts at your college. You can take the course online now and not report the results to your regular college. Heck, you don’t even need to complete the entire online course if you don’t want to.
- You can take the course and if you do really well in it, you can transfer the credits you earned to your regular college. If you do, you might not need to take the course in September at all. You’ll save money and time and have an easier time of it when school starts again.
- You can increase the odds that you will get a good grade when the course really counts on your transcript. As you’ve probably noticed, it’s always easier to earn a stronger grade on the second try.
There are other reasons for taking college courses online over the summer too. Taking courses can help you pick your college major, for example, or help you define a new career path, or help you eliminate one from consideration.
If these ideas sound good to you – and they should – check out some online courses today.
