Most students who graduate from high school are only aware of the conventional method of learning in college, which is through a class setting. Skills that are important for success in the future can also be developed through online courses as well. With that being said, Kean University has created an accessible and easier way for students to learn from the comfort of their home.

Kean Online is an alternative system that offers students the ability to learn while tackling a busy schedule. This was created to provide world-class programs while providing flexibility for students to complete their degrees in a manner that best suits them. 

Compared to other higher institutions, Kean strives to build an institution that favors affordability. In regard to tuition and fees, undergraduate tuition is $471 per credit, while graduate tuition is $823 a credit. 

Furthermore, obtaining valuable skills does not have to correlate with a campus. Rather, students should be able to build a professional network and connections even while studying online. 

To help better acclimate to Kean Online, experienced faculty and other supportive tools can forge a path of success for students.

For students considering online learning at Kean, exploring the programs can prove to be beneficial to narrowing down what they would like to study.
