How Will You Choose an Online School?

Article by Nicole on 11 Nov 2012

If you're considering attending an online college or university, what factors are most important to you in deciding which school to attend? CollegeEducation411.com has a great tool to help provide you with information about schools that might be a good fit for you. But if you are also doing your own research, what will you consider before choosing the online schools you want to apply to? Our research tells us that many students considering online schools look at factors such as:

  • Accreditation of the online school
  • Age and reputation of the school
  • Degrees and majors offered
  • Career placement of the graduates
  • Financial aid availability
  • Tuition rates as compared with on campus colleges and universities
  • Access to student and teacher interaction and collaboration
  • Flexibility of class schedules and assignments to accommodate work and family commitments

 

Will these factors play a role in your decision of which online schools to apply to? Or, are there other factors that you are considering? What advice can you offer other students who may be interested in applying to an online college or university? Leave a comment below to continue the conversation
