Why is the Online Degree Database better than other online degree research websites?

light house image Over the past five years, hundreds of degree programs have moved online. We help you cut through the massive clutter of information on the web today to find the right online program.

Without our database, you could spend weeks researching potential online degree programs. You must either go to individual university websites or to online education directories to find the right program for your needs.

University websites don’t always make it easy for you to find the online program details you need. And, depending on the type of degree you are researching, there could be hundreds of programs to review to be sure you find the one that best meets your needs.

Online education directories are marketing websites intentionally designed to look like they save you time and effort in your search for an online program. But these websites are designed to advertise and generate leads for online programs. Only the online degree programs that pay for this visibility are included in their websites.

How can you tell if a website is an online education directory? It requires you to provide your personal contact information before you can see the online degree information they have to offer.

What is the result of using an online education directory? You don't get complete information about all of the program options that are available to you and you start getting phone calls from recruiters who want you to enroll in their programs.
