Rowan-Cabarrus Community College offering associate degree program online

August 27, 2012

As a parent, you know how difficult it can be to attempt to return to school and earn a degree, especially once you have little ones to take care of at home. Grants for parents, scholarships for moms and accredited online degree programs are all making it a bit easier for parents to reach their goals.

Recently, Rowan-Cabarrus Community College announced that it will be offering an associate degree program in criminal justice online to students who cannot attend class on campus, according to the Charlotte Observer. This is the seventh online degree program that the school has provided to students.

"The criminal justice program gives you the flexibility of online courses while guaranteeing that you will always have someone there to help," Kimberly Boling, coordinator of the online criminal justice program, told the news source. "The program's setup means you can connect with your professors and fellow students on your own time."

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that in 2011, those with an associate degree earned approximately $768 weekly compared to the $638 individuals with only a high school diploma made. Grants and scholarships are helping more parents obtain degrees from accredited online universities on their own time.
