A local college's online associates degree program is booming this year.
The number of students in Glenville State College's associate's in criminal justice program is five timers bigger than it was only a few months ago.
The program is open to students who complete the state's Corrections Academy.
College staff have been promoting the program in recent months, and said the program offers students a way to keep up with their education while working at the same time.
"There are courses in our associate degree program that are covered in a very great manner at the academy, so those folks, they actually get credits for those, those are classes that they won't have to physically take," said Glenville's Art Trimble.
