It totally depends on you. All online programs are different, but all have one thing in common: they require a lot of self-discipline. Often more than at a traditional school, because you won't have the structure of a regular schedule. Other than that, the differences between online and traditional school can be an advantage or a drawback for you, depending on your personality.

Online classes give you teacher access and peer interaction, as well as hands-on assignments--some programs require an in-person residency in an area near where you live. They are generally as rigorous as traditional schools, and many students say they get more interaction in a small online class than in an enormous lecture hall at a traditional school.
