Education Community Resources
Affordable Colleges Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing free higher education tools for current and future college students and their families, recently published research on all the not-for-profit universities and colleges in Texas that offer online college programs. Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Today, many of the most established not-for-profit state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students. The dataset is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS.
