Accredited and Affordable Online Colleges - Our organization recently published a resource for students seeking accredited online degree-granting universities. Historically, online learning has been dominated by for-profit institutions which have played an important role in the post-secondary ecosystem. Today, more and more traditional colleges are offering degree programs online to meet the needs of a more diversified student population. Universities such as Oregon State, University of Illinois, and Penn State are fantastic examples of how a traditional colleges can adapt to meet changing needs and technology availability. While we try to be fair to all accredited institution types, our resource focuses more heavily on the not-for profit programs. It is critical that we point students towards accredited programs to ensure transferability of credits and financial aid eligibility. On our page, users can find schools based on state, subject, degree level and religious affiliation. On many of these pages, we created affordability rankings to help students find value in post-secondary education and limit the need for burdensome school loans.
