AS Fashion Merchandising

"Taking online classes has been great! The staff was very helpful when I started."

After working at Macy’s part-time for some extra holiday money, I knew that I really like retail. Not so much the selling, but the planning, merchandising and marketing aspects of the fashion world. My temporary, seasonal position turned into a permanent fulltime position and I knew that if I wanted to go further in the company, I needed a degree. My boss suggested a fashion merchandising degree.

I could not find anywhere within driving distance that offered the program, so I began searching online. I was skeptical of many websites that I came across, until I found SNHU. First of all, it was an actual brick-and-mortar college and I was able to fill out the FAFSA.

Many of the other online colleges were not compatible with the FAFSA. Taking online classes has been great! The staff was very helpful when I first started. They were available to answer all of my questions. Just concentrate on the end result and how good it will feel to hold that diploma in your hand and know that you accomplished something great!
