My son is interested in doing online college (that he has a full scholarship in) while going to Yeshiva. However his current first year Chofetz Chaim Yeshiva doesn’t really let any time taken off. What’s a good Yeshiva in America where he can go and only learn two Sedarim a day while doing online college for the rest of the time?April 15, 2015 4:51 pm at 4:51 pm #1072631newbeeMember
Can I ask, what online college and what does he want to get out of it (i.e. do for a living)?April 15, 2015 5:42 pm at 5:42 pm #1072632
It’s for a state university, but my question pertains more to finding a suitable yeshiva where he can learn seriously 2/3 of the dayApril 15, 2015 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #1072633oot for lifeParticipant
Shor Yoshuv in the past had a number of guys attending college in the evenings. As far as learning seriously, he will have to be self motivated, saw a few too many guys fall through the cracks there (this was a long time ago though, I hear changes are in the works).April 15, 2015 6:29 pm at 6:29 pm #1072634
When will his current yeshiva begin allowing it?April 15, 2015 7:06 pm at 7:06 pm #1072635
Chofetz Chaim Yeshivas are typically three Sedarim, in which online college isn’t technically possible unless one somehow does it during free time. I think fifth year in Queens they’re permitted to take classes but only allowed off two night sedarim a week.April 15, 2015 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #1072636zahavasdadParticipant
Online college degree arent worth the paper they are printed on, they are not accredited and they are super expensiveApril 15, 2015 9:05 pm at 9:05 pm #1072637
zahavasdad that statement was once true. However, nowadays online courses have little difference between any on campus degree in terms of employment. Furthermore, my sons degree program IS accredited by the highest form of accreditation available for this particular degree. And I already mentioned he has a full time scholarship.April 15, 2015 11:56 pm at 11:56 pm #1072638
How about maayan hatorah, in Queens.April 16, 2015 12:10 am at 12:10 am #1072639

Are there any bummy yeshivos you think he’d like?
Fair warning: he may end up doing bummy things like wearing. His yarlmuke weird and talking bummy and not smoking.April 16, 2015 12:15 am at 12:15 am #1072641
Does you have any off the derech friends he can ask?April 16, 2015 12:17 am at 12:17 am #1072642
Why not do an online yeshiva, if you think they’re the same?April 16, 2015 12:24 am at 12:24 am #1072643
Chabad is into kiruv. Maybe a chabad yeshiva would be ok with it. I know there’s a big one in morristown, and a small one in Vancouver.April 16, 2015 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1072644

No serious college will let.April 16, 2015 12:49 am at 12:49 am #1072648birdsonParticipant
I think Ohr Hachayim in Queens allows it. Most of the guys go Landers (about 15 minutes away) twice a week for part of afternoon and night seder. Some take online classes instead.April 16, 2015 12:51 am at 12:51 am #1072649

go to a shtark yeshiva and miss night sederApril 16, 2015 2:00 am at 2:00 am #1072652
Go to a real yeshiva and get married, then you don’t have to go to night seder.April 17, 2015 7:37 pm at 7:37 pm #1072653Binyamin2711Participant
I found the right yeshiva for you. Its Heichal Shmuel, On Ave O E 10th st. I have been there for a year, and its very shtark, matzav.The rebbeim are very warm and bochurim really get involved . And they Have a program for Touro College guys twice a week for some who feel the could use it. They are very open to other colleges as well if you ask for it.
