Online Universities Versus Campus Based Universities
By: Kristine Walker of www.collegegrabber.com
When it comes to earning a college education, the options available are vast today compared to those available as recent as 10 years ago.
Traditional Four Year Schools (Public and Private)
Some students prefer the experience of living in the dorms, exploring sororities or fraternities, and getting involved in the clubs and extra-curricular activities a traditional four year school has to offer.
Junior Colleges/Two Year Colleges
Some students chose a junior college rather than a four year school.
At a junior college, students take classes to earn an associate’s degree (commonly referred to as a “two-year degree”). While junior college classes have a lot in common with four year schools, they typically don’t have the option for students to live on campus.
Another option for inbound students is to attend
Whether you decide to attend a four year school, junior college, or Online University, make sure the school you chose is accredited; meaning approved. Regional accreditation is the highest regarded type of accreditation to achieve.
