Shawna Sweeney, of Waukon, Iowa, has been selected one of GetEducated.com's Excellence in Online Education and Distance Learning scholarship winners.

Sweeney, a working mother of two young boys, is enrolled with Dakota State University's Online Master of Science in Information Systems Management.

"When I decided to continue my education the main item I had to consider was cost," says Sweeney.

GetEducated.com's online college rankings reveal Sweeney chose wisely. Dakota State's distance learning Masters in Information Systems has been ranked a Best Buy by GetEducated.com's research team several years running.

Dakota State University offers several online degrees, including Associate degrees in General Studies, Programming, Business, and Health Information. Bachelors in Health Information Administration. Computer Information Systems, and the Management of Information Systems are also available.

At the graduate level, where Sweeney is enrolled, online students can choose to earn Masters in Information Assurance, Information Systems or Educational Technology. Dakota is unusual in that it also offers a Doctor of Science in Information Systems online.

Sweeney's dream job after earning her Masters online is "to teach online for a community college or university in either a Health Information Technology or Information Systems program."

The working mother credits online education with allowing her to advance in her life and in her career. "As a working mother of two small children online learning is the only option for me. If I could not obtain a degree online I would not have gotten my bachelors degree or be working toward my masters."

Sweeney is currently employed in her area of study, as a health systems analyst Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center.

Sweeney sees higher education as crucial in terms of modeling for her sons. "I want to instill in my children the importance and power of a great education. I want to show them that that if you work hard in life you can go anywhere and do anything you want."

GetEducated.com is honored to be part of Sweeney's success at Dakota State University Online.
