College students finding ways to cut more corners - Shannon Johnson, WJRT Flint, Michigan

Prices at the pump are causing college students to take a different approach to learning. Registration for online classes is soaring as fast as prices at the pump.... Enrollment for online courses is soaring at U of M - Flint. "From 2005 to 2007 they increased 42 percent," said Director of Distance Learning Deborah White. You'd think the university would advertise the online course in light of gas prices, but White says the university is "not able to advertise because we can't meet the demand right now."
