Peachtree Corners, GA (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
In recognition of online learning and National Distance Learning Week (November 5-9, 2012), Ashworth College is offering a free semester to any new online associate degree student.
Sponsored by the United States Distance Learning Association, National Distance Learning Week (NDLW) promotes and celebrates the growth and accomplishments of distance learning programs.
Available only to high school graduates who are starting their college careers, new students can enroll in any of school’s 15 online associate degree programs. An Ashworth (http://www.ashworthcollege.edu/) Associate Degree program consists of four semesters and with this promotion, upon successfully completing the first three semesters, students will be allowed to complete their final semester for free.
"National Distance Learning Week is a great way to recognize the 6.1 million U.S. students who have pursued some or all of their education online and the institutions that are educating them," says Rob Klapper, President of Ashworth College, citing a 2011 Babson Research Group study.
“In addition to providing students with a quality online education, this promotion will save students as much as $1,250 dollars off the program’s total price.” Klapper also explained that Ashworth doesn’t charge for course materials, making an Ashworth College Associate Degree a significant value.
For those interested in taking advantage of the free semester can contact an Ashworth Admissions representative via phone, enroll or request information via the school’s website or Facebook page or speak directly to an Ashworth Admissions Representative at 800-349-6708.
