OnlineColleges.org connects prospective students directly to online colleges and universities. We’re dedicated to helping people further their education and career goals and as such, we only promote accredited online degree programs. We also set ourselves apart by featuring a database containing only not-for-profit schools. This makes us a unique resource for students who are not interested in attending for-profit institutions. Consider us your one stop shop for everything related to online education!
We’re here to help you invest your education dollars wisely. Today’s higher education marketplace offers a mind-boggling array of options ranging from community colleges to online PhD programs. As with any industry in a free economy, different institutions offer different levels of quality. Unlike many countries, the U.S. does not have a central ministry of education that oversees all colleges and universities. We do, however, have a government-sanctioned system comprised of independent agencies that provide institutions of higher education with their stamp of approval.
This approval, or accreditation, is meant to assure prospective students that the school meets certain education quality standards and that it has the resources to deliver on its promises. Accredited schools are recognized by employers, other schools, and the federal government, which controls financial aid dollars. We created AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org to be the comprehensive accreditation resource for anyone in the process of selecting a college. It is our fervent hope that through the information we provide here prospective students will be able to make informed decisions about which college to attend and avoid being saddled with student loans and worthless degrees from “diploma mills.”
