Increases in online enrollments for summer school have been getting a lot of attention as gasoline prices continue to rise. South Texas College saw a 35% increase in online this summer. Member schools of the Tennessee Board of Regents saw a 29% increase. U Mass Online had a 46% increase. One Missouri student claims to be saving $200 per month per month by taking courses in health, humanities and world music - all online. "I don't feel I get as much out of an online class as a campus course," Ms. Miller said. "But I couldn't afford any other decision." The increase at the Missouri school was 52%. -BD
