Accredited Non-Profit Online Colleges & Schools
Non-profit online colleges exist to fulfill an educational mission, rather than to generate a profit. They cannot distribute earnings to owners by law, but instead have to re-invest money back into the school. They are exempt from federal corporate income taxes and may receive direct public funding or have charitable endowments. As a result, they may offer lower tuition and/or more types of financial aid. Tuition, financial aid availability, and performance can vary by school, so we encourage you to look at all factors affecting your school choice, not just the institution type.
