Are Online Degrees Respected?

Online education is becoming much more mainstream, and many people are pursuing these degrees before successfully entering the workforce. However, internet-based degrees are not as respected by all potential employers.

The reception of online degrees varies between employers and also between fields. Some fields, such as computer programming and other tech-related jobs, may have a more favorable view of internet-based learning. These tech-savvy jobs tend to care more about the specific job skills a person has learned than how or where those skills were acquired.

Other employers may be skeptical of the quality of an online degree, especially due to the reputation of some colleges as "diploma mills." Fortunately, as people become more savvy about potential scams, students and employers alike can learn to separate the wheat from the chaff when judging a particular degree program.

Overall, according to a report published by CNN, 83 percent of surveyed executives agree that an online degree is just as credible as one gained through any other university.

Online vs Brick-and-Mortar Education

When considering your future education, you may wish to research the available degree programs that will put you on the right track toward the career that you want. Whether you are a first-time student or returning for a second degree after graduation, college can open doorways to additional opportunities for personal development.

With so many traditional universities offering online programs, it can be especially challenging to choose between your options.

Here are a few factors to take into account when considering schools:

  • Scheduling

    One of the greatest strengths of an online education is flexibility. People can take online classes while working, raising children or otherwise handling family commitments. Most online coursework can be completed at the time most convenient for you rather than needing to attend classes in person. For those who struggle with arranging childcare or who work full-time, this can be a primary attraction.
  • Social Interaction

    For some students, the information provided by the coursework and the degree at the end are the only important take-aways from the college experience. Others prefer the social interaction and support of peers, which can make online classes feel a bit lonely. Internet-based classes are rarely built around discussion and classroom interaction, which can make some students struggle to engage with the material.
  • Convenience

    For some people, online universities are a more reasonable option as there may be no local college options nearby. If you live in a rural area or are otherwise unable to pursue a particular area of study without relocating, long-distance education courses can be a good alternative.
  • Cost

    Education is expensive, and cost may be a factor in deciding on a school. Tuition costs at both online and brick-and-mortar schools are frequently very similar, although online college may tend to be slightly more expensive. However, the secondary expenses associated with college can stack up quickly at a brick-and-mortar school: housing, gas, childcare, missed work, meal plans etc. If cost is a main issue for you, be sure to review all of the expenses associated with your top choices so that you can compare them accurately.

How Many Online Universities Are There?

There are numerous opportunities for online and distance learning. Not all of these programs are accredited, however, and some programs that claim to offer online education may fail to deliver on that promise.

As of 2017, there are 973 schools that have accreditation for their online degree programs. This amounts to 67,284 available programs, with nearly 9 million students enrolled across all schools.

According to U.S. News & World Report, the 10 largest online schools are:

Some of these universities are for-profit schools, meaning that they are not funded by state or charitable dollars. However, this doesn't apply to all of these schools, and there are many online degree programs that are nonprofit.
