Regardless of whether you are looking at an online or traditional degree, the first thing you want to consider is whether or not the college has accreditation. Universities that have a high accreditation means that any type of credit or degree you receive is transferable. If you choose a program that has a low form of accreditation, you may not be able to transfer your credits and for some employers, the degree may not mean anything.

You will also want to read online reviews about the college or program you are considering and research as much information as possible to help you make an informed decision. Other things you may want to take into consideration include:

  • Whether there is a need for any in person coursework
  • What types of financial aid are available
  • How flexible is the course or program
  • How much time do you have to complete the program
Hope that helps!
