Online Universities and Colleges - Choosing the Right Degree Program


Once you've decided that online college is right for you, you're only halfway there. The next step is to choose the right college for your needs. Here are some things to consider that will help you to narrow down your options:

  • Is the program accredited?

    You will want to research the potential universities to weed out any possible scams or low-quality offerings. Be sure to check that the school is accredited and will offer a usable degree before you make any steps forward or exchange money.
  • Does the school offer the degree you're looking for?

    Not every online college will offer all programs. If you know that you're planning to pursue a degree in nursing, for example, you will need to narrow your search down specifically to online colleges with nursing programs.
  • Is the college well-reviewed?

    With so many options to choose from, there is no need to settle on an online university that is poorly rated. Research how that college stacks up against its competitors, and take time to read legitimate reviews from former students as well. This will help you to determine if the college is really as good as it seems to be on the surface.
  • How much will it cost?

    Before committing to schooling, be sure that you know exactly what it will cost and how you will afford it. Financial aid options are available for distance education students, but be careful with any financial aid that seems too good to be true or is offered with a "hard sell" type method as this could be a sign of a scam.
  • What are the program's graduation rates?

    See what information you can find about the graduation rates for your chosen university, especially the number of students who graduate on time. If you're estimating the costs of your education for four years but end up needing five to complete the program, you'll graduate with more debt than you expected. Having realistic expectations for how quickly you can actually complete your degree can help you to budget accordingly; it can also point out possible red flags if many students have struggled to graduate on time.
