New Guide Offers Advice for College Students Considering Online EducationLAKE TAHOE, Nev. (Oct. 23, 2015) – ConsumerAffairs.com, a national leader in online consumer news and reviews, released an online guide to help prospective college students compare options for earning their degree online. The free guide, available exclusively at http://www.consumeraffairs.com/education/online-colleges/, allows visitors to compare the
nation’s most popular online colleges and offers an indepth look at features students should consider including financial aid options, degree programs, accreditation, cost, flexibility of scheduling, and overall quality.
Distance education has significantly improved student access to higher education opportunities and, according to the Instructional Technology Council’s 2014 Distance Education Survey, student enrollment in online college courses continues to grow at a higher rate than overall student enrollment at colleges and universities.
For some, earning a degree through a traditional university experience is not an option due to costs associated with housing, travel, and time. Earning a degree online can also be an attractive option for students who must maintain a fulltime job while they earn their degree. The ConsumerAffairs guide helps prospective students learn what to look for before choosing an online degree program and gives users access to hundreds of verified reviews from students across the nation who have attended the colleges mentioned on the ConsumerAffairs website.
The ConsumerAffairs website offers more than 100 guides covering a variety of topics and industries including additional education categories such as online courses, online high schools, tutoring services, student loan lenders and beauty schools.
Listed among the top 600 websites in the United States, ConsumerAffairs.com offers free
resources, news and tools for more than 8 million visitors each month. A leader in consumer advocacy, ConsumerAffairs has been featured in a number of prominent media outlets including The New York Times, CNN, Forbes and AARP.
