Most colleges and universities in Michigan are incorporating online degree programs, with 34 that offer at least one Bachelor's degree online. Knowing that students and families are faced with trying to figure out the best option for them, Best Schools has created and focused their site and its resources to provide an investigative review of the online education landscape and to critically evaluate the increasingly-popular online college rankings that are being touted on the internet.

Here are a few of their resources:

Ideally, we want students to be able to gain valuable insight into their education especially when it comes to online education, understanding tuition and financial aid options, as well as true cost vs. benefit.
