This means that students can complete assignments at times that are convenient for them, even if it means studying late at night or early in the morning. This can be particularly helpful for students who are involved in extracurricular activities that take up a significant amount of their time.

Adaptability: Online learning provides students with the opportunity to adapt their studies to fit their personal needs. Students who have time-consuming extracurricular activities can work at a pace that suits them, whether that means taking additional time to complete assignments or working ahead. NorthStar has several tools that help students pace themselves in a way that aligns with their schedules.
