HIGHLAND HEIGHTS, Ky. – Thinking about enrolling in an online course? Northern Kentucky University is waiving application fees for online programs this week to mark National Distance Learning Week.

Online learning continues to rise in popularity, and nearly half of all college students take one or more online courses each year.

NKU’s Online Learning Program offers nine undergraduate, six graduate, and eight certificate programs, including a B.A. in History that is one of the few completely online, fully accredited programs of its kind in the U.S. 

More than 1,200 NKU students take online courses at NKU, and two-thirds of them live in Kentucky.

For students like Claire Clouse, the courses offer flexibility. While on a recent mission trip to El Salvador, she was able to complete coursework toward her Master of Science in Nursing degree while also earning valuable field experience.

“Having NKU’s support, as a working woman and student, means a lot. It’s been very encouraging,” she said. “The level of communication I’ve received meant I felt supported personally and professionally.”

National Distance Learning Week is Nov. 9-13. The Online Learning Program is also offering information sessions, contests and tips, and training for faculty this week.
