    Affordable College Online As the name implies, accelerated programs offer a legitimate way for students to complete a certificate or degree program in a shorter period of time than traditional programs, thus helping them to save time and money and get a head start on their career pursuits. These programs are designed for motivated, energetic students who want to get through school and onto achieving their career goals. However, accelerated degrees may not be the best choice for students who need extra time with schoolwork or who tend to lag behind. Because of the accelerated nature of these programs, the work is nonstop, and it can be hard to catch up once a student gets behind. This is precisely the reason why these programs are a solid choice for students who are eager to tackle their education head-on.

    College Affordability Guide Our team (based in Washington, DC) just finished analyzing over 10 million data points related to the 5,000+ colleges and universities in the US, to find the ones that offer both financial accessibility (the lowest costs for low and middle income students, as well as flexibility in learning & credit), and positive outcomes. Of course outcomes are subjective, and can be hard to quantify. We focused on graduation/transfer rates and loan default rates, with the idea that completing one's studies, and being able to pay back one's loans, together form a reasonable baseline for a worthwhile college experience.
