Tell us what you're looking for and we'll get you started!

In this section we discuss the how-tos of investigating colleges and choosing the best one for you. We cover important topics such as accreditation and schools that have gotten in trouble with the government.

We also provide some advice specific to online programs: How to Analyze an Online Program, and How to Judge Online Degree Program Instructor Quality.

An important note: If a school’s mentioned in the “Sanctioned” article, that doesn’t mean that it’s a flat-out scam or that you shouldn’t consider any of its programs. It just means that the school has gotten in hot water with the government (in many cases, as a result of sales & marketing practices that pressure students to enroll in high-cost programs). You should make sure to fully research your other options (and verify any claims that admissions/enrollment counselors may make) if you’re thinking of enrolling at one of these schools.
