How Lea Rash Earned Her Degrees Online While Overseas

By December 8, 2012

Follow me on:

Lea Rash was 50 by the time she earned her bachelor's degree. She and her husband had raised a family before she took the time to pursue  her own dreams, and she did it sitting next to Arabic-speaking students overseas. Ten years later, she has a master's degree and is looking into a doctorate, and they are her social security. Her husband recently suffered a terrible stroke.

"I've now realized that we both endured the worst of it because of the safety net I had just completed after 10 years of hard work," Lea writes, "a net made of hope that was reinforced with the most important social security a woman will ever have--an education."

It is even easier to earn fully accredited bachelor’s and master’s degrees using online courses and tests (actually offered in other countries too) through Excelsior College (www.excelsior.edu ). Many of my classmates in the courses are in a multitude of other countries, even at sea, in the military. You can take them wherever there is an internet connection. The cost is okay too and full federal financial aid is available as are scholarships.
