online education

Starting this fall, some students at the University of Maine at Presque Isle won’t need to worry about how many hours they need to spend in class to graduate. The university announced today that it’s launching an online “competency-based” degree for some of its business students, which will allow them to get a bachelors’ degree at their own pace, and for less than $10,000. The new program is aimed specifically at adults who may have dropped out of college in the past.
