Megan Clifton was looking to earn a degree to advance her a career with the federal government, but already had a full schedule. Between her full-time job and family commitments, she didn’t have much time to spare. 

“I realized a degree would be very beneficial, but taking in-class courses would be too difficult to work around my full-time schedule, so I wasn't sure how'd I'd be able to make it work,” she said. 

Megan heard about studying online at University Canada West through her work and after doing some research, she discovered that it could work with her busy schedule. 

The single mother has a son, who is now four years old. She pursued and earned a Bachelor of Commerce Degree. 

 “Online learning made working full-time and going to school possible,” she said. “I love the flexibility of the online classes, as well as the structure of the weekly course load and due dates. 

I was able to complete my school work around my work, family and social life.” 

The degree opened new doors for Megan.

“My supervisors were waiting for me to finish my degree so I could be given the opportunity to work as an advisor,” she explained. 

Megan earned her degree and posted stellar grades along the way. She finished her degree with the highest grade point average in her class.
