When it is time to buy a new car, a gardening tool, a bed for your dog or cat, or an airline ticket, it is natural to shop around and find the best quality item at the best price.

But for some reason, when choosing an online degree program, many people read one or two unfavorable news articles and decide to forget about what may be the best or only option for continuing their education. But instead of giving up, why not just shop around?

It is easy to shop ‘til you drop at reputable, user-friendly websites like Directory of Schools, which has over 9,000 accredited online degree programs and over 1,300 online schools. Anyone can browse the online degrees, online schools, online classes, education articles, and additional resources. The costs vary between schools; so shop with a budget in mind. Once you discover what you want, just fill in a short online form to receive additional materials. It is as simple as that!

There are a few things to consider when shopping for an online degree program:

  • Some online degree programs offer a discount to state residents or military personnel.
  • Some e-learning institutions offer scholarships or grants along with federal financial aid.
  • Some online schools follow a semester or quarter system, while others let you work at your own pace.
  • Some online degree programs offer increased interaction between students, while others emphasize independent study.
  • Some online schools are strong in job placement, while others are geared toward those who are already employed.
  • Some employers offer tuition reimbursement, but only to a few specified schools.

So remember, treat your education like you would any other purchase and shop around.
