Affordable Colleges Online

posted Oct 10, 2014, 8:14 AM by Waterville School

Affordable Colleges Online, an organization dedicated to providing free higher education tools for current and future college students and their families, recently published research on all the not-for-profit universities and colleges in Washington that offer online college programs. Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Today, many of the most established not-for-profit state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students. This dataset is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS.  A few of the key features on the page:

- Unique list of accredited not-for-profit institutions offering online programs, sorted by affordability

- Spotlight interviews provided by many college deans with the institution's philosophy on online learning

- Direct links to the specific online departments, or e-campus, of each institution

Additionally, our site helps high school students research post-secondary options by providing content-rich resources including financial aid guidebooks, accredited college search tools, and free open online courses (MOOCs) from national universities such as MIT and UC Berkeley.

Our Washington colleges guide can be accessed here at no-cost:
