WATERTOWN, SD – Lake Area Technical Institute officials announced today that it has been named one of the Best Online Colleges in South Dakota for 2018 by TheBestSchools.org. Ranking guidelines include selecting the online colleges based on the quality of programs, types of courses and degrees offered, faculty strengths, as well as school awards, rankings, and reputation, including a strong reputation for online degree programs.

Lake Area Tech offers e-degrees and online certifications, a blend of mostly online coursework combined with some on-campus hands-on experiences, in 12 programs. For a complete list, please visit our e-degree page at https://www.lakeareatech.edu/academics/edegrees/.

According to TheBestSchools.org website, online colleges in South Dakota offer numerous benefits for students. First, most deliver courses asynchronously, meaning that students can log in when it is convenient for their schedule. Second, many programs are designed for working adults, and shorter course terms allow students to complete a year’s worth of credits while only taking a few courses at a time. Third, like their on-campus counterparts, online students receive academic assistance, career services, and advising. Finally, most public and private online colleges offer financial aid for eligible students, including scholarships.

TheBestSchools.org is an independent organization comprised of a dedicated group of educators, editors, authors, and web professionals who believe learning transforms lives for the better and should remain a lifelong pursuit.
