Students in the state of Michigan and even around the country with work and/or family obligations need no longer miss out on the opportunity to pursue a bachelor’s degree at a far-off university. Dozens of schools now offer some form of online education programs, providing the means to earn a bachelor’s degree online in as little as a year, in some cases. The below schools are just of small sample of undergraduate degree programs available online from colleges in Michigan:
