JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Students have increasingly left the four walls of a classroom and are taking advantage of more online opportunities, A-State officials said Monday. 

According to  Talk Business & Politics, at least 4,241 students are enrolled full-time in online class offerings. That is a 61% increase from the same time in 2014. 

University officials said at least 3,200 online students took classes in fall 2016. However, when the second eight-week semester started, another 1,000 students had enrolled. 

Classes are divided into eight-week semesters, while online students can take up to three classes each semester.
