Top 10 Online Colleges for Low Income Students

Top 10 Online Colleges for Low Income Students

For those with low income jobs, earning a university degree may seem like a dream that will always be out of reach. Attending classes means missing work, and for those who already struggle to pay bills, this can never be an option. That is why looking into online courses may be the only solution for those in this position. Studying during the free time they have available, while still allowing them to work at their scheduled hours, can be a lifesaver. Moreover, because there are a number of universities that offer online programs with low tuitions, the dream of an education and a new career is easier to achieve for low income students than ever before.

1. Southern University at New Orleans

With a tuition fee of $4,911, this is the cheapest university for accredited online programs, and the best option for low income students. They have a basic Bachelor of General Studies completion program available, but if this area is of no interest, keep this school in mind anyway since new programs could be placed online at any time.

2. Chadron State College

With 7 accredited online programs, a business program that gives its students the chance to focus on nine different concentrations, and the internships needed to complete a variety of general majors that are organized by the university and an organization near to the student, this university is worth more than the $5,630 tuition price.

3. Western Governors University

Conceived by 19 U.S. Governors in 1995, Western Governors University accepted its first students 4 years later. It has since become one of the best school options available to low income students, thanks to the comprehensive online programs available for a tuition of only $6,070.

4. Minot State University

Though some of its programs require students to be in attendance online at certain times, the low tuition price of $6,086 coupled with the 10 undergraduate programs available make this an excellent choice for low income students hoping to earn a bachelor’s degree.

5. Peru State College

Though this school only has seven online undergraduate programs (five of which are in business, and the others in both criminal justice and psychology), they are high quality programs, which is where Peru’s focus is aimed. If interested in earning a degree in these fields, the tuition of $6,188 is well worth the price.

6. Bellevue University

Its rank in the top 20 for its online undergraduate program is due to the wide selection of courses available to its students. It also has a tuition of $6,300, which makes this university hard to beat for those with low incomes who want to complete their education.

7. West Texas A&M University

For those interested in business, nursing, or criminal justice, this university offers the programs necessary to acquire an undergraduate degree in these fields. They also offer their online students an Emergency Management Administration program, which is not available at many other online schools. The tuition is only $7,220.

8. Granite State College

Unlike other colleges, Granite has decided to offer only two graduate programs. Instead, they give their students the opportunity to choose from a wider variety of undergraduate programs. Focusing in this area can help to create higher quality programs for online students, yet still keep the tuition low at only $7,065.

9. Columbia College

Columbia College is a low income student’s dream, thanks to its 14 online undergraduate programs, all of which allow the student to work according to their own schedule, rather than coercing them to attend classes at a given time. The low tuition of $7,115 is also a bonus for low income students.

10. Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide

This is one of the few schools that focus mainly on aeronautical programs. Those available for online students include aviation, aviation maintenance, and avionics. There is also a variety of graduate level programs available, such as Space Education, Management, and Systems Engineering. Those interested in any of these online courses will be required to pay a tuition of $7,800.

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

10 Benefits of Sleeping Naked You Probably Didn’t Know

Sleeping is one of the most important things we do every night.

Getting the right amount of sleep has an untold number of health benefits and not getting enough sleep is a serious problem in many countries around the world.

So you should have heard of the many benefits of getting adequate sleep, but did you know that you can get additional benefits by sleeping naked?

Here are some benefits of sleeping in the nude:

Video Summary

1. It is easier.

When you don’t have to worry about sleeping in clothes, things start to get easier. You don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money. You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away. You may have to clean your bed sheets more often, but not nearly as often as you’d have to wash your pajamas when you run out.

2. It forces you to be ready to go more often.

Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. This can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain.[1] When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that’s a good thing.

3. It can make you feel happier and more free.

Just imagine the feeling of laying in bed naked. You’re free of your pants and underwear. Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets. The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free. Everyone can use that kind of good feeling every now and then, and it may even help you be happier as a person.

4. Skin-on-skin contact is the best.

    If you’re married, or living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling. This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.[2]

    5. It could lead to better sleep.

    Let’s revisit the scenario I described above. There are no drawstrings or clothes getting tangled in sheets. You don’t have to worry about shirts getting twisted. All of these distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You don’t need science to tell you that better, deeper sleep only helps you be healthier.

    6. It can help your skin.

    For once your body gets to breathe. Your private parts, armpits, and feet are generally restricted all day and are often covered by multiple layers, even in the summer time. Give those parts a chance to air out and breathe. This can lower the risk of skin diseases, like athlete’s foot, that result from wet, restricted skin.[3]

    7. It helps you regulate your cortisol.

    Cortisol is a very strange chemical in the body but it can do a lot of damage. When you sleep naked, it helps keep your body temperature at the optimal ranges so your body can better create cortisol. If you sleep overheated your cortisol levels tend to stay high, even after you wake up. This can lead to increased anxiety, cravings for bad food, weight gain, and more terrible things.[4] Sleep naked so you can keep your body temperature down and sleep well so your body can properly produce and regulate cortisol.

    8. It balances your melatonin and growth hormone.

    Continuing along that same vein, keeping your sleeping environment below 70 degrees (F) every night can help your body regulate its melatonin and growth hormone levels. These chemicals help the body do things like prevent aging and are essential to good health. When you sleep in clothes, your body heats up and prevents effective use of these hormones. In other words, sleeping with clothes on makes you grow old faster.

    9. It can keep your sex organs happier.

    For men, the cooler sleeping conditions allows your testes to remain at a cooler temperature. This helps keep your sperm healthy and your reproductive systems functioning as normal. For women, the cooler and more airy sleeping conditions can actually help prevent yeast infections. Yeast grows better in warm, moist conditions.[5] When it’s cooler and dryer, the growth of yeast is prevented.

    10. Sleeping in the summer is more bearable.

      Summertime is a tricky time to get good sleep. If you don’t have air conditioning, then you may find your bedroom a bit stuffy at night.

      Shedding those bedtime clothes can help the bedroom feel more comfortable. You may even be able to turn the A/C off on those cooler nights, which can save you a few bucks on your electricity bill.

      Don’t wake up drenched in sweat again because your thermostat is downstairs and the hot air expands up to your bedroom where the thermostat can’t read the warm temperatures.

      Sleep well with your naked body!

      With these tips in mind, it’s time to start taking off your clothes at night!

      Of course, there are times where clothes are preferable. If you are ill or it’s cold outside, then you should sleep with clothes on to help you stay warm and prevent further illness. Otherwise, go commando!
