Affordable Colleges Online, 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 North Carolina that offer online college programs. Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Yet 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.
