CBC Announces Launch of Online Degree Programs
Conway, AR, - Central Baptist College announced today that it has launched an accredited online degree program starting in the fall 2011. The program is accredited though The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. Though the institution has offered classes in the distance delivery method for quite some time, CBC will now offer students the ability to earn their entire degree online from the regionally accredited college.
“The primary purpose of offering distanced-delivered courses and programs at Central Baptist College is to provide access to students who cannot attend face-to-face classes on campus,” said Dr. Gary McAllister, Vice President of Academic Affairs at CBC. “Some live too far from campus, and others have scheduling conflicts that prevent them from taking the classes they need. Distance-delivered courses can resolve these issues.”
CBC Online is convenient and flexible for adults with busy lifestyles. The program offers students a way to study or learn on a flexible schedule. It is also convenient for students with children, full-time jobs, who live far away or are on the mission field. The slogan for the new degree program is “college at your convenience.”
“Approval of our Online Studies program by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools is a major accomplishment for CBC. It will have a profound impact upon the institution,” said CBC President Terry Kimbrow.
