According to the third annual Online College Students report from The Learning House, Inc. and Aslanian Market Research, a large majority of students are earning their degree to improve their employment situation, and 80% of them have transfer credit to help them finish faster. “For institutions looking to expand their online footprint, it’s critical to communicate the right message to students,” said Dr. David Clinefelter, Chief Academic Officer at Learning House and coauthor of the report. “While overall college enrollment is declining, the growth of online degrees continues,” said Carol Aslanian, Senior Vice President of Aslanian Market Research and coauthor of the report. “Offering the degrees students want, accepting transfer credits and streamlining the enrollment process are all key indicators for students when choosing an online degree program.”
