“Students in Illinois now have another college choice, and at a time when more are turning to online learning more than ever before.”
--Darcy Richardson, Division President, Anthem College Online
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) June 14, 2011
Anthem College Online received permission from the Illinois State Board of Education last week to enroll residents into its diploma and degree programs.
Permission came in the form of an exemption for schools that offer degree programs but do not have a physical presence in Illinois. Anthem College Online operates from Phoenix, Arizona.
“This is very good news for us, and we believe, for Illinois students,” says Anthem College Online Division President Darcy Richardson. “Students in Illinois now have another college choice, and at a time when more are turning to online learning more than ever before.”
Illinois residents now have the option to study for one of several associate and bachelor degrees online in the healthcare, accounting, business, paralegal and criminal justice fields. In addition, the college will be introducing two new programs later this month: an Associate of Science degree in Health Information Management, and a Diploma in Medical Office Administration.

Online education is popular with working adults who appreciate the flexibility to determine when and from where they will log on to attend classes and complete assignments. Other people who can benefit from an online education include caregivers—particularly stay-at-home parents of young children—people who live far from college campuses, and persons with mobility-related disabilities.
