I got orders to go back Deployed and I am planning to start a Master's Degree online while deployed. I want to know experiences, feedback and how flexible were the professors. I am open for suggestions about Online Universities.

It would drastically depend on the school you would be going to. I was taking classes with AMU. I had a great experience. I was able to file for extensions for my classes with ease. They are focused on military and have great classes. If you were to take online classes from a traditional school that offers online programs you may have trouble. They are set with timelines that are not flexible. My platoon would have busy weeks and slow weeks. If needed I could take a week off from classes but in a traditional schools online program that may hurt you in the end and affect your attendance.
<p>I completed a few on-line classes towards my Bachelor's while I was deployed last time. My professors were very understanding when something came up and I needed a few extra days. Honestly, the only difficulty that I had at the time was reliable internet connection. I was taking classes through American Military University.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Good luck with your Master's program!!!</p>
