As students today are increasingly becoming "non-traditional," meaning they are either financially independent, a single parent, attending school part time, or working full time, it has become more difficult to create a schedule that works with all of our responsibilities. At Pepperdine, about every 1 in 5 students will not graduate within 4 years, often as a result of these other responsibilities. 

To combat this issue, Pepperdine should offer online courses. This will allow for a greater flexibility in our schedules, which is beneficial at a small university that has a limited amount of course options with several specific course requirements. Several studies support the use of online courses in colleges, providing evidence that online courses are just as effective, if not more than, in-person classes.
