Jackie Dason Enhanced Her Career And Academic Prospects
With A Degree From Northern Port University

Working mother Jackie Dason was determined to complete her bachelor's degree while raising four children. Prior to enrolling at Northern Port University, Jackie Dason was forced to move frequently due to her job as a construction contractor. She had taken classes at several colleges, but had yet to finish her degree. Because of the hectic job requirements, her husband asked her to find a suitable job at her home New Castle, Delaware. Knowing she had no option, she quit her job hoping she would be quickly able to find a relevant job. However, she was utterly disappointed when she found out that despite her experience she was unable to secure a reputable position because she had no college degree. As her husband began taking classes in the evening, Jackie also wanted to return to school, but it seemed impossible because of her job and the four children to take care of at home. And since her husband used to study in the evening, one of them had to be home. A traditional program was not feasible for Jackie, but the online program seemed a perfect fit for her. She started searching for online universities offering online bachelor programs. She wanted to pick the one that offered an accredited program at an affordable tuition fee. She was also keen on getting a degree as quickly as possible. A friend, who had recently graduated from Northern Port University, recommended it to her. Upon going through Northern Port's website she came to know their bachelor's program was not only accredited and affordable, but also quick, allowing her to earn her degree within a period of two years.

Excited, she called up the student consultant to know more details about the university. Below is a set of key questions she asked the consultant.

1. Is the program accredited?

Jackie was most concerned about the accreditation of the program. She did not want to invest time in a program which would not help in her career progression. The consultant told her the program was accredited by UAC (Universal Accreditation Council). Accreditation from UAC is proof that Northern Port University is providing quality education and that its study programs are accepted globally.

2. How quickly can I finish my program?

Jackie had read on the site that she could finish her entire program in two years. She wanted to know if there was a possibility that she could finish it earlier. The consultant assured her that she could finish her program as soon as she wanted, depending upon her own pace and availability of time. Also, since she had previous college experience the university would transfer her credits and reduce the same from her program. This would help her finish her program earlier than expected.

3. Will it be possible for me to receive a deduction in my tuition?

There were several fee reduction options available through which she could reduce her fees considerably, such as credit transfer, scholarship and prior learning. The consultant asked her to apply for all three at the time of admission and, if considered eligible, she could complete her entire program for as much as $1699.

Satisfied with the consultant's assurances, she decided to enroll at Northern Port's program immediately. As promised, she got a scholarship and credit transfer for three courses. Also, her first course fee and admission fee were also waived, allowing her to pay a reduced fee of $ 1599.00 from a whopping $14,400.

As soon as she paid her admission and enrollment fees, she became a student of Northern Port University. Her online classroom was activated, which allowed her to study the courses and take exams simultaneously. She appreciated the flexibility of the classrooms; she could attend them at any time of the day. Also, she was given access to personalized student area from which she could pay her fees, manage her courses and request additional student services.

Because of the flexibility and easy-to-use online classrooms, she was able to finish her program in fourteen months. Soon after she received her degree, she switched her job through Northern Port career placement services. she was now working as a customer relationship manager in a bank at her home town. This allowed her to spend more and more time with her family. Jackie is extremely thankful to Northern Port for helping her not only get a degree, but also enter her professional life again. She has now enrolled for a master's degree at Northern Port and hopes to complete in less than a year! She recommends Northern Port University to everyone wishing to earn a university degree to enhance their career and academic prospects.
