AffordableCollegesOnline.org (AC Online) recently analyzed online degree programs from more than 2,000 accredited colleges and universities across the nation. According to their research, Sierra Nevada College offers an exceptional collection of distance learning options at a very affordable price. This combination of quality, affordability, and flexibility earned Sierra Nevada College a place on their list of the Online Colleges in Nevada That Win on Affordability.
“For-profit schools no longer dominate the distance-learning landscape,” said Dan Schuessler, founder and CEO of AC Online. “So many of today’s top universities have added full online degree programs to their catalogs, making it much easer for non-traditional students to receive a quality education.”
Opponents of for-profit distance learning have cited both quality and affordability as drawbacks of online model. Yet over the last few years, traditional colleges and universities with proven quality have made online programs accessible via discounted tuition and assistance programs.
“Offering students great online programs is only half the battle,” said Schuessler. “The colleges on our list offer students quality, flexibility and affordability.”
