The emphasis on online higher education has increased significantly as a part of our nation's educational system.  Because of this a database has been created of every major college program from all accredited colleges in the U.S. that offers both full or partial online course options for those who want to pursue their education. This database provides information about the alternative options for students and they can select which programs to pursue. It gives students the opportunity to pursue a degree in a school of their choice. View the database:
