“With my childhood, my parents always stressed that college was important and that no one could ever take it away from me. So, I started with an associate’s degree at the College of Southern Idaho and wanted to go for a bachelor’s degree,” Ervinca Covic said.
Distance or online degree programs emerged as the answer. She enrolled in the online business program at Boise State University to begin her journey to a bachelor’s degree while working full-time as an administrative assistant for Southern Idaho Economic Development.
“I loved that Boise State allowed me to continue my education without moving to the area. My job was in Twin Falls, where I was learning new skills every day that went hand-in-hand with my education,” she said.
“It was important to me to continue working while also attending all of my courses.”
