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 from school to school, so we encourage you to look at all factors affecting your school choice, not just the institution type.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.
This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our site), all of the data reflects 2013-2015 school years from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2014-2015 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, except on our reviews pages, where all data is aggregated from user submissions. NCES and BLS data is updated annually to reflect the most current available data and review information is updated in real time.
Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.
