Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The dramatic growth of higher education in the United States since the end of World War II, and, particularly, the rapid rise in the number of community colleges in the 1960's, give evidence of the desire of Americans for greater opportunities to go beyond earlier schooling to meet their learning needs and interests (Houle, 1974). External degree programs are providing students with programs that allow them to receive an education, meet goals of personal satisfaction, promotional success, and career expectations (Kiplinger Washington Editors, 1983).
