Will I receive the same diploma in an online program?

Yes. Your diploma will be issued by Rasmussen University and will in no way be different from that of an on-campus student.

Are online courses cheaper?

No. Since online programs at Rasmussen offer the same quality education as on-campus programs, the costs are similar. However, our admissions advisors can help you identify scholarship opportunities, complete the required paperwork and receive the financial assistance you qualify for. Visit our Tuition & Aid page to learn more.

How credible are online degrees?

The credibility of an online degree comes down to the credibility of the school it’s from.

Can I work while taking online courses?

Absolutely. Online programs are ideal for those who are working or have other responsibilities. You can choose to take classes on either a part-time or full-time basis.
