I think it really depends on what you want to study

That depends on what you want to study.

Depending on what you want to study, there are many options available. I believe educationconnection.com has a compilation of online colleges all in one place so you can see what's out there. :)

 The problem with colleges that are not brick and mortar colleges is that they tend to be more expensive.  In this day in age most community colleges offer at least 90% of their classes online and that is the smarter option because not only are they cheaper they are accredited so you can transfer your credits to 4 year universities for higher degrees.  Even 4 year universities offer most of their classes online to accommodate persons with disabilities, people in the service who are living overseas, and people who are just plain busy.  They even have online or proctored testing so you can take tests from out of state or overseas.  Typically the only classes that are not offered online are things that need hands on training like automotive or some nursing classes.  If you are majoring in something business administration or accounting all of those classes can be taken online via local community college or university.

I have attended 2 community colleges (I moved) and now I am at a 4 year college btw.  I have taken most of my classes online.  The only time I take in person classes is when I am taking a more difficult class (like calculus) and I need more in-person learning.

Try looking into a local community college.  You'll be surprised how much is online at brick and mortar community colleges and the price difference from only online colleges.

I am going to Harrison.  It depends on what you are looking for.  What are your needs and area of interest?

Just make sure the program you want to study is credited.  If it is not, employers will not hire you.

Yes! Online colleges are a TON more expensive. I looked into Keiser University, one semester was going to cost me around $8K. One semester at the tech college I went to was $1700.
