What College is Right for You? [Infographic]

Choosing the right college can be tricky.  You have to choose one that offers a degree program you want, one that you can afford, and one that is properly accredited.  Sometimes you also have to choose between a standard four-year program and an accelerated program.

Many for-profit colleges and universities are starting to pop up.  They often offer accelerated or modified programs tailored to adult learners with day jobs.  But how do you know if this type of program is right for you?

The first thing to consider is cost.  For-profit schools usually cost substantially more than public universities.  However, they tend to spend more money on research, which can be a bonus.  In the end, you have to decide whether to attend an institution that is committed to providing you with an education or one that is committed to providing shareholders with a return on their investment.
