Our Data

All of our individual school data — including graduation rate, tuition, and financial aid rate — was gathered from the most recent information provided by the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS). This resource is maintained by the National Center for Education Statistics. The newest information available is for the 2013-2014 school year. All of the data for IPEDS is reported by individual institutions during survey years.

Advertising Information

We have financial partnerships with some of the schools featured across our site. When users opt to receive more information about a program offered through one of these schools, we may receive compensation. For the sake of transparency, partner schools are always labeled across our pages as being “Sponsored,” “Featured,” or something similar. Any details about programs offered through an affiliate school are provided by the school itself and have not been independently verified by Onlineschools.org.

We aim to provide a resource for users who want to learn more about online education at every level. Our database of online schools is in no way definitive and we do not claim to provide information about every school in the U.S. offering online programs, courses, or services.
