Washington DC

Washington DC is the capital of the United States of America. This small district supports a large population, with over 646,000 residents living within its borders. There are more employees in the area than there are residents because most government employees commute from neighboring cities. The average worker here earns $36.51 an hour, which equates to $75,950 a year. Job opportunities here are extremely competitive, but they are reachable with the right education.

 

Washington, D.C. does not have any schools with laptop programs at this time. With that in mind, you can still go to an online university while living in the nation's capital. There are several schools that offer laptops for students throughout the country, depending on what your major is. Some of them are available as loaner laptops, and others are yours to keep once you graduate. Explore your options, and you can find an online laptop program that's right for you.
