Regardless of whether you are leaning towards a for-profit or not-for-profit school, you should consider these factors when selecting a college or university:
Accreditation and reputation. Does the school you are interested in have a solid reputation with regards to accreditation? Accreditation “requires every part of a school or program to be examined and judged by experts[i]. If the school makes the grade, then it “passes.” If a college is accredited, it is important to know the reputation of the accrediting agency. You can check the Council of Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) site for more information regarding which colleges and universities are accredited.
Flexibility. Does the for-profit or not-for-profit college offer a flexible schedule? Is this factor important to you or not? You may find that if you work full-time, you’ll prefer a school schedule which is more easily adapted around your schedule.
