Online tuition makes students reconsider - Chelsea Twiss, the Easterner

Online learning at Eastern may be convenient for some, but whether the benefits of an online education outweigh its costs seems to remain in question. An additional cost of $202.10 per credit is charged to students enrolled in an online class. When visiting Eastern's online learning website, a green globe pops up with the caption, "Cut down on gasoline and travel time when you study online from home!" While these may be true advantages to online learning, some students feel it doesn't justify the extra costs.
