Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Today, many of the most established not-for-profits state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students. The dataset is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS.
