Now there is new help for students who wish to find the online colleges and degree programs best meeting their needs. An old website, Online Degrees and Scholarships has added a link (below the end of its alphabetical list of colleges) to a page with a simple search box that lets prospective students “match” themselves to more than 2,000 degree programs.
Even better news is a brand new site that does what no similar site ever has. Online Colleges and Degrees actually ranks the best twenty online colleges and universities, using criteria such as academic quality, variety of offerings, access to academic support services, willingness to consider prior academic credits and life experience, tuition costs, availability of financial aid, and more. We won’t tell you which colleges and universities rank where because it will spoil what may be some interesting surprises for you.
The new site also has an interesting article called “Ten Mistakes NOT to Make When Choosing an Online College” that all prospective online education students should read.
