Taking online courses proved to be beneficial for Shrestha as she could interact with her instructors and review classwork at her own pace, and maintain relationships with her classmates over the web.

“The online experience was unique because most of the instructors had included video recording of their teaching sessions which allowed students to watch them as many times as needed and from the comfort of their own homes,” she says. “Likewise, students were able to communicate with each other as well as with their instructors at any given time through discussion boards and webinars which was very helpful.” Through Clayton State University’s online program, Shrestha discovered a way to advance her career on her own terms.

“I would have never earned this degree in such a short span of time and with so much ease if it had not been an online program marvelously designed by the expert faculty members of Clayton State.”
