Choosing an online school is about researching the school and knowing yourself. It also helps to look at school rankings from reputable sources like The Best Degrees, US News and World Report, University of Phoenix online, and OEDb. During your research, you should look at characteristics like accreditation, student to teacher ratio (the more students per teacher, the less individualized attention you will receive), and tuition price.
Also, check out student reviews. You want an unbiased opinion from others who have gone the route of online learning. It’s important to see what the school offers, but reviews of the school from previous happy or unhappy students can reveal more in terms of what really goes on.
