Prospective GCU students will be able to satisfy general education requirements at OnlineDegree.com through self-paced online courses, tuition-free to the site’s participants. Thus, significantly lowering the total cost of education and removing impediments that often prevent individuals from taking initial steps toward their degree.

At OnlineDegree.com, students can receive college credit toward their degree taking online courses without the normal applications, entrance exams, or tuition associated with traditional institutions. The fast-growing platform was created by startup veterans and leading academics in higher education to help people go back to school. OnlineDegree.com not only prepares adults for collegiate learning, but works with participating accredited universities to award transfer credit for student’s completion of the courses. With thousands of students now enrolling every month, this provides a flexible pathway for busy adults to complete general education requirements and lower the cost of a college education.

“One of the most critical issues facing our society is access to affordable higher education,” says Grant Aldrich, Founder of OnlineDegree.com. “To enact real change, we must address the issues preventing people from getting the education they need. Grand Canyon University is bringing about that change.”

Grand Canyon University is Arizona’s premier private Christian university helping students find their purpose with next-generation education, including over 200 academic programs with many in high-demand fields.

Online Education expected to continue it’s growth in 2019

edufficient advertising for online education

 

The number of students who were enrolled exclusively online grew to 15.4 percent  which is up from 14.7 percent in 2016, or about one in six students. The percentage of all students who combined online and in-person courses grew faster, to 17.6 percent in 2017 from 16.4 percent in 2016.  The percentage of students who took at least one course online grew to 33.1 percent, from 31.1 percent in 2016.  Online education continues to prove it’s not only here to stay but growing.

With traditional non profit institutions, OPM’s & for-profits continuing to cater to this growing market it’s clear that there is a lot of opportunity ahead.  Most of the traditional non profits who succeed are generally partnering with OPM’s like 2U or OPM alternative facilitators like Edufficient.  Those who try it alone continue to have a high failure rate.
