More students enrolling in online college classes - Margarita Raycheva, Maryland Gazette

This fall Shelby Hill will be logging more hours on her home computer than in a classroom on Frederick Community College’s campus. Hoping to save money on gas and eliminate a time-consuming commute to school, Hill has registered for online classes only beginning in August. ‘‘It’s flexible and I will be working full-time this year,” said Hill, who graduated from Brunswick High School in June.The 17-year-old considered taking traditional classes, but gave up when she realized that driving back and forth could cost her almost as much in gas as she would pay for her tuition.
