Applying to an online school may seem like a daunting task, but millions of people have done it and you can too. Let’s first discuss the tests you might need to have taken. You may be anxious about taking an admission test, or one of the professional exams, but if you apply to a program with that testing requirement, there is no way of avoiding it. But take heart—just follow the instructions, and you will find that it’s easy.
Some programs at community colleges and distance and online learning programs that are specifically designed for adult learners do not require a standardized admission test as part of the application process. However, policies get a bit more stringent at the graduate level and vary widely.
