Be Informed. Be Successful.

Choosing the right online school is a big decision. We created this guide to help you find accredited schools that offer online programs and to give you the tools to evaluate which one is best for you. With resources like student reviews, school comparisons, rankings, performance data and even scholarships, our goal is to help you achieve yours.


Want to know which colleges made the list of top online schools? We combine government data and independent student reviews to create our annual rankings to help guide your decisions.

We profile 64 online schools that offer great services for active duty and veteran military students. These schools offer financial support and flexibility worthy of the designation “military friendly.”

We compiled a comprehensive list of online degree programs across 136 careers and subject areas. Our list includes last year’s salary information and projected growth for the specific career paths, enabling our readers to easily identify accredited online programs in growing industries.

Most students research multiple schools before selecting the ones they would like to apply to.

To figure out which option is going to best suit your needs, compare a dozen different college attributes, from student recommendation rates to annual tuition, using this comparison tool.
