How Do Online Colleges Compare With On Site Institutions?

5/22/2011 06:09:00 PM ·

My fiance was recently investigating Online Colleges for online degree programs in psychology. I am certainly in question about the standards of the academics and whether or not there is funding and financial aid available in this regard. I am a firm believer in face to face learning, as this is what works for me, yet I know that certain methods of obtaining information are varied between students. Considering I'm a researcher and blogger, I tend to dig deeply into the fine print of educational programs, as I did the same when I first visited (http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/). So what do people look for when they search for colleges online?

Flexibility is certainly one of the main selling points of online programs and cost is of course a consideration. As a student, I tend to mix up my class modes, with at least one online class which allows me to work at my own pace and in my pajamas *smile*. However, in searching for online degree programs for psychology I noticed that the cost is considerably lower than state institutions. Not to mention, you have access to colleges you would have never had the chance to visit, especially if you live in another state. I am pleasantly surprised with the options for students these days, so I give a wholeheartedly thumbs up to online colleges!
