While completing a bachelor's degree program typically takes four years, some bachelor's degree programs can be completed in just three years, while the more complicated degrees can take five years to complete. Some bachelor's programs can be completed entirely online without any requirement to visit the campus, while other programs have residency requiring the student to visit the campus.
All in all, while the majority of the programs can be completed online, the student is required to occasionally visit the campus. Some schools, such as Capella University, are entirely online schools with no physical campus. Other schools that have a traditional physical campus, such as Boston University, also offer students the option of competing a bachelor's degree 100 percent through distance education. The number of traditional schools that are now offering online bachelor's degree programs continues to increase.
