Welcome To CollegeDegreeComplete.com
College Degree Complete is a project created by the small but mighty staff of successdegrees.com. We have a long experience in online education, including work on the creation of several websites listing jobs for college professors and providing commentary on the issues affecting higher education.
We’re big believers in online education, and have actually taken online business courses from both Wharton and eCornell. Our goal on this site is to provide an easier way for adult learners to find accredited programs that can help them finish a college degree in a reasonable amount of time. Because of the high cost of education and the time demands of jobs and family, we’re very much aware of how hard it is to go back to school and finish a degree you may have started. But we’ve seen how friends and relatives who have failed to complete a bachelor’s degree have had long term difficulties in getting jobs or promotions in all sorts of different fields. For better or for worse, the reality today is that having a college degree is as basic and necessary as it was to have a high school degree thirty years ago.
We’re also very much aware that there’s a good deal of debate today about for-profit colleges, government aid to their students and the amount of debt that students leave school with. But we happen to believe that a lot of major online schools, some for profit and some not, have simply done a better job in creating more innovative programs for adult learners. Many of the famous private schools in the U.S., we feel, are extremely resistant to change and, in some ways, a lot less responsive to the needs of their students than the big online universities.
This site earns an affiliate fee whenever a reader like you fills out an inquiry form for one of the featured schools. We hope that we earn your interest by giving you useful information that helps you find the right school for your particular needs and goals. We don’t try to pretend that we know everything about the thousands of different degree programs offered by the schools we feature. But we do try to provide you with tools that make you a smarter shopper of college degree completion programs. If you have any questions, comments or complaints about the site, please feel free to contact us about it. We promise to respond to your questions.
