Rome, GA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/27/2012 -- As the popularity of online learning grows at all levels of education from pre-K through PhD, prospective traditional and non-traditional college students have more alternatives than ever before. Private, public, for-profit, and online hybrid versions of all three compete for the college-bound student. This dynamic growth has raised the question, “What am I getting for my money?”
America's Best Online Colleges is a recognition program by Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc., an independent educational research and consulting organization specializing in the recruiting and retention of students for institutions of higher education.The program is especially designed to help identify the best online opportunities in higher education and joins the other recognition programs developed by the research firm.
America's Best Online Colleges is based upon a default rate below the national average for institutions within their classification for certain Federal Family Education Loan (FFEL) or William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Programs complied by the U.S. Department of Education at: http://www.2.ed.gov/offices/OSFAP/defaultmanagement/cdr2yr.html.
“Those institutions whose students are paying back their student loans are indicative of providing educations based on greater student support and course offerings relevant to economic growth and workforce success,” according to Lewis T. Lindsey, Jr. president of IR&E. Inc. “ These attributes are exactly what students should seek and expect in the institution they select to attend whether they are enrolled in-class or online. The public now has the ability to examine a school’s default rate and consider that in the decision process, and we are proud to help them identify the best opportunities” said Lindsey.
