Who Do Online Courses Cost More? [Infographic]

Have you ever thought about taking online college courses? Many universities and colleges are starting to offer them, but they often cost more than traditional classes. The reason for this cost disparity is startup costs. There are rules and regulations for everything from who can teach online courses to what kind of technology can be used, so colleges and universities are having to hire new staff or certify their old staff. They also have to buy the technology that is being used in online courses. Once these startup costs have been incurred, costs are likely to go down over time.

Online courses can be a great way for both traditional and nontraditional students to earn college credits. They fit into your lifestyle instead of dictating it, and if you forget a lesson you can go back and review it any time. If you receive all your course credits online, you can save money on commuting and housing, and the university can save money on facilities. Check out this infographic for more.
