I love the freedom of being able to study and watch lectures at any hour, when it's most convenient for me.

When searching for an online degree program, I was actually very surprised by the lack of online programs offered in Louisiana. I searched several universities and discovered that many Universities did not have full degree programs available online. When a friend recommended ULM, I was excited to find that they had the online psychology program that I was looking for and was amazed at all of the other degree options that ULM offers online.

I chose ULM to obtain my degree because being an eULM student allows me the opportunity to work full-time to support my family while still taking classes. I love the freedom of being able to study and watch lectures at any hour, when it's most convenient for me.

Once I complete my degree program I will be the first in my family to obtain a college degree, and it means a lot, not only to me, but to my family as well. Having a degree offers better job opportunities and a better life for me and my family. This will show my children that getting an education is something that you should work hard toward and should not take lightly. When I finish my bachelor’s degree I plan to continue my education and get my master’s degree in counseling. I want to be able to help people with their problems and situations that they are going through and put them in touch with resources available to them and their families.

I have enjoyed just about every aspect of my online college experience at ULM. I was deployed overseas while trying to apply and schedule my classes for the first time. I had no telephone access so I had to rely on email to get anything accomplished. Everyone that I dealt with, from the Registrar’s Office and Veterans Affairs to my Academic Advisor, was extremely helpful and made the enrollment process as simple as possible for me. When I attended another university in 2004, I had a hard time getting in touch with anyone, but that has never been the case at ULM. If the staff at ULM could not answer my questions, they found someone who could, and I received a response right away. I think the time when the ULM Bookstore shipped my textbook to the Middle East for me with a note saying, "Thank you for your service" is when I realized that I am attending a great University with faculty and staff that really care for their students.

The eULM program is now simply referred to as ULM Online.

...I was traveling internationally for my job quite a bit, so I knew I couldn't take traditional in-class attendance courses.
