  • The National Education Alliance Counseling Center: Advocates for the Students Served

    Have you considered going back to college and earning a degree to help you compete for promotion in this tough economic climate?  You’re not alone.  In fact, more than 18 million students are pursuing degrees across the nation today!

    The majority of adult learners, because of busy schedules and commitments, cannot take time off to attend classes on campus.

    More Than 5 Million Of These Adult Learners Are Pursuing Degrees At A Distance.

    Hundreds of colleges and universities offer thousands of degrees at a distance. How can anyone know which college or university is right for them?  The National Education Alliance Counseling Center empowers students to compare where they stand toward thousands of degrees at a distance from hundreds of accredited colleges and universities nationwide – that’s how you can know!

    Far too many students discover that much of the credit they have earned in the past will not apply toward the degree and/or college they are interested in.  The problem is that they presume losing credit in transfer is simply the price one has to pay when transferring to a different college or university.  That doesn’t have to be the case. 

    The experts at the National Education Alliance Counseling Center build electronic education records for students which include every potential source of college credit earned in the past.  Then, this electronic education record is systematically merged into the curricula of numerous degrees matching the student’s desired area of study and level of degree (Associate, Bachelor, Master, or Doctorate).  The best options for the student to consider (based on his or her unique academic accomplishments and stated needs, goals, and desires) are then presented in detailed degree plans for review. 

    Dare to compare – that’s what the National Education Counseling Center empowers students to do so they can make an informed decision before investing their money, time, and effort into pursuing the degree.  Every student receives several degree plans to consider from the professional team at the National Education Alliance Counseling Center.  When the student is ready to apply for admission, we even transmit the chosen degree plan to the participating college or university and request a courtesy pre-admission review to make sure the student has a clear understanding of what the future holds. 

    And the counseling center’s job is still not complete, they provide a continuum of counseling support from exploration to admission and onward to graduation. 

    You see, every semester, when the student is preparing to enroll in the next course or two at the college, the counseling center’s staff is available to guide them in the use of iStudySmart.com courses and the hundreds of resources that are available on the student support website, to help them make maximum use of nationally recognized college level examinations.  These examinations are accepted by more than 2,800 accredited colleges and universities across the nation.

    However, with the National Education Alliance Counseling Center at your side as your advocate, they will guide you in the use of iStudySmart.com courses in concert with courses taken from the participating college. This accelerates your progress to degree completion, while saving a considerable amount of time and money along the way. 

    The National Education Alliance Counseling Center is your advocate, providing you with a lifetime of support! Make loss of credit in transfer a thing of the past.  Get the credit you deserve with our support!

  • Online Learning Reaches Beyond the Traditional Classroom

    How often do you use the internet? Think of the different ways you log into the fast-paced, virtual realm. Whether you're checking your email, reading up on the latest news story, or comparing the benefits of an iPhone to a Blackberry, the internet offers a vast amount of information at your fingertips.

    One of the internet's most intriguing characteristics is its global convenience. No matter where you are or what time zone you're in, the internet allows access to its information network at anytime. This is especially appealing to the online student who seeks to receive education outside the traditional classroom setting.

    Online education removes the geographic limitations and boundaries of brick-and-mortar buildings and allows students from all over the world to learn. Those in the military, for example, are able to earn a degree while serving their country.

    Military.com talks about the benefits of online education, mentioning "thousands of duty standing, single parents, and even deployed members earn their college degrees each year using online education."

    The e-learning world allows students the opportunity to access academic support from all experience levels and geographic locations. Through message boards, discussion forums, and online chats, e-learners are exposed to diverse perspectives from both faculty members and their fellow students across the world.

    Online education provides the opportunity to connect with others globally with convenience and ease. If you're considering e-learning, don't think you will "lose" anything from stepping away from the traditional classroom. Think of what you'll gain and how online education can best benefit you.
