- Make Progress at Your Convenience: Prove you have mastered concepts and receive credit toward your degree on a schedule that works best for you
- Save Money: Enroll in faculty-led courses and gain access to our library of self-paced courses
Your Schedule. Your Choice.
We reinvented our online approach to give you flexible options so you can choose the way you want to learn through a combination of faculty-led and self-paced online courses. The more ambitious your schedule is, the more you can save.
The Flex Choice part of the degree was the differentiation for me when I was looking at a number of different colleges. That was one of the big appeals. Flexibility is huge when your time for school is limited to after work and on the weekends.— Mike Goettl, Flex Choice student

Details on Flex Choice Option

2Time to complete is dependent on number of credits transferred in and completed each quarter.
Students enrolled in the Flex Choice option take a minimum of two faculty-led courses per term and gain access to a library of self-paced courses that are available to them at no additional charge. Faculty-led courses are delivered in a six-week online format and tuition is charged at $260/credit plus a $150 course resource fee for each faculty-led course. Students may choose to take self-paced courses as they apply to their program requirements. The self-paced courses are 100% optional, and students can complete this degree without completing self-paced courses. If self-paced courses are selected, they must take be taken alongside their faculty-led courses and be completed within 60 days. No other discounts or scholarships can be applied.
Incoming students must either possess an Associate’s degree or be able to transfer in 60 quarter credits (40 semester credits). This program consists of 90 credits, 24 of which may be completed through optional self-paced courses at no additional charge. For students transferring in an Associate’s degree, faculty-led courses are priced at $150 per credit. For students transferring in 60 or more credits but do not have a conferred Associate’s degree, faculty-led courses are priced at $260 per credit plus a $150 resource fee for each course.
The degree will be awarded upon successful completion of the required courses, or after all requirements have been met by a combination of course completion and credit transfer based on an assessment of the student’s prior learning experience. Upon completion of the requirements in each self-paced course, Rasmussen College will evaluate the student’s documentation for transfer credit acceptance towards the degree in which the student is enrolled under our existing prior learning/credit transfer policy, and credit by examination (TO) or transfer (TR) credit will be granted, as applicable.
Please note self-paced courses and TO/TR credit are likely not transferrable to other colleges; credit transfer decisions are always at the discretion of the receiving institution.
The Flex Choice option is not available with the Ocala Professional Nursing (ADN) program. Total tuition reflects the Florida Practical Nursing program with maximum number of available self-paced courses.close
