Resources and Guidance Abound With 'Accredited Online College Degrees' New Website

Sat, 18 Feb 2012 23:03:13 EST

Pittsburgh, PA - With unemployment at a continuing high, Americans are turning to higher levels of education to ease their job-seeking difficulties.  College and graduate degrees often come with unique difficulties, however, including relocation costs, confusing entrance requirements, and high tuition rates.  The experts at accreditedonlinecollegedegrees.org, however, have created a website that aims to arm potential students with information to overcome some of these challenges, and even provide tools that can help students get started right away.
 
Unlike many online education sites, Accredited Online College Degrees aims to not only help Americans obtain degrees that could make them more marketable in their job searches, but to equip them with the information needed to find financial aid, appropriate study topics, and even tips for how to study once they are back in class.  The site's manager, Dr. Matthew Memmott, is an alum of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and was able to finance his education entirely through scholarships and grants. Dr. Memmott explains:  "The purpose of our website is not to just try to rush you to a expensive diploma, but to help everyone who visits find the information they need to obtain an education, complete a degree program, and obtain financial aid.  We want to help our visitors do whatever they can to better their educational status."
 
The website includes articles about how to get financial aid as well as actual links to sites where visitors can apply for scholarships and grants.  In addition, there are widgets to link up visitors directly with schools and degrees of their choosing, a blog with articles dedicated to students and education-focused professionals that discusses study tips, application secrets, and world news for education, as well as opinion articles from education experts.  For those who are interested in simply learning online rather than actually obtaining a degree, the website also includes links to world renowned colleges with online courses such as MIT and Stanford.
 
The staff of accreditedonlinecollegedegrees.org is knowledgeable and helpful, and their site provides a wealth of information that prepares its visitors to succeed in the online education world.
