For people with full-time jobs and growing families, it can be tough to think about advancing your education. But going to school online can offer flexibility for busy families.
ABC Action News is committed to highlighting some of the best education for your money to get on a good career path.
In Nicole Baker's house, the kids are playing while mom's going to school.
"You can do it 24 hours a day, seven days a week," she said.
It hasn't been easy for her to get her bachelor's and now master's degree online.
"It's very difficult to run a family, run a career and try to go back to school at the same time," Baker said.
But for Baker, who doesn't live close to a college and is already working, this is her best option.
"It makes it to where every single person who wants to get a degree can," Baker said.
"They can put their children to bed at night and start their course," said Cynthia DeLuca, USF Innovation Education.
The University of South Florida already offers 99 online degree programs alongside many other traditional colleges and universities. Many of their online students are getting degrees in in-demand areas and getting jobs fast.
"Cybersecurity is very popular," DeLuca said. "It impacts people in every facet of business."
But not every online program has what employers are looking for.
