Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration Volume 19, Number 3, ISSN 1556-3847
Online programming has expanded greatly within higher education and much attention has been spent on public two year colleges (more commonly known as community colleges) and both private and public four year institutions. This research seeks to expand understanding of the small market of private not-for-profit two year colleges within the United States. The research provides an analysis of 80 such institutions and their pricing strategies for online learning as well as the online programming behaviors within this market. Findings indicate that 48% offer online courses with 32% of them offering online degree programs. Additionally, this market shows a strong preference for setting online programming tuition equivalent to on-campus rates at 87% having this tendency.
