Universities.com Encourages Students to Explore Their Educational Opportunities
Oct 13, 2010 (12:10 PM EDT)


With times being uncertain for many Americans, Universities.com is helping students find opportunities through education.

WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Today's college-bound students may find the high cost of education intimidating – especially in today's economy – but Universities.com is giving students the ability to find the right school based on their needs.

It's no surprise that college-associated costs have been steadily increasing.  According to the National Center for Education Statistics:


College Institution

1998

2008

community college

$2,000 annually

$6,900 annually

private four-year college (tuition, fees, books, room & board)

$5,500 annually

$30,000 annually




However, with today's high unemployment rate, many Americans are choosing to head back to school – whether for the first time or for additional training. Universities.com allows students to search over 5,000 online programs by the type of degree (Associate's, Bachelor's, Master's and Doctoral programs), major and location – in addition to a directory of over 7,000 campus-based schools.  In just three easy "clicks," a prospective student has access to online degree information that used to take days of college open houses to acquire.
