A Discounted ‘Gap Year’ Online
Lindsay McKenzie, Inside Higher Ed
As president of Park University, Greg Gunderson worries that students who decide to take a temporary break from their education won’t return. Instead, they may join the ranks of the 36 million Americans with some college, but no degree.
Rather than take a year off from their studies, Park University is encouraging students to take a different kind of gap year—one where they can continue their studies online from the safety of their home and possibly save some money on their education in the process.
