  11. first of all my name is Mohamed SOULEIMAN ADEN from Djibouti I student of HIGH SCHOOL I WANT TO JOIN MY STUDY OF scholarship and I need to helps me and I already take degree I am very yung I AM 17 years old and degree take 25 I AM STUDEN OF HIGH than if you need olin degrees I say the true if you want you can going at HIGH SCHOOL I agree but university nonnnn I do not university that is all for me I wait for you my gmail

  12. I do agree with the writer that online degrees are a bit cheaper as we compare with internal colleges tudents.This is one advantage that is a considerable. The online studies can facilitate the students with the availability of teaching materials unlike the internal students.
    The other advantage is that there is no any difference between the twos which are the online ones and the internal students. So the other problem is that In Africa we are really poor we can not even afford to pay these online degrees. Im a good example here Mozambique might be the country which has the lowest rate of wage. Any government worker in Mozambique can not afford paying these degrees .myself as a medium English teacher i teach high grades and earn not more than $200 per month. I have enrolled with Atlantic international university and completed with GPA of 3,92 .but now the problem is that I don\’t have money to pay for my degree. I owe Atlantic international university about $4800. and i don\’t know when am i going to finish my debts and i need a certificate or transcript inorder yo proceed with masters degree. With this little amount I earn i look after my family but desperately. So i beg most online universities to consider us fro the third world countries. If Mozambique is paying this little amount so what about Malawi and other country with a poor exchange rate.we need a 100 % scholarship assistance
