Largest Online Colleges
Some online schools are surely larger than others. Keep in mind that “larger” does not always mean “better.” It truly depends on the program that you are looking for. Here are some important questions to think about:
- Am I just a number; a face in the crowd when I enroll in this program, or can I get a personalized education even though the school has a very large student body?
- What percentage of students has secured a job within a year of graduating?
- Does the school have student services available like help with assignments, schedules, resumes and cover letters, alumni networking, and technical support?
- How many students are enrolled in each college program and what is the student-to-teacher ratio?
- Are classes taught by live professors, or are the courses mostly made up of pre-recorded videos and reading material?
- Is the school accredited with the leading organizations in my targeted field of study?
