Study on 5,000 Colleges: Where does your money go?
#1
Quote:For-profit and online institutions generally spent less than half of their tuition revenue on instruction, according to the report. By contrast, public and private nonprofit institutions generally spent more on actual instruction than they took in for tuition. Spending patterns varied widely among private nonprofit schools.

Quote:The report found that schools with higher online enrollment rates typically spent the least on instruction per-student. In the 2014–15 academic year, Western Governors University, an online, nonprofit school, spent almost 40 percent of its tuition on instruction, but other schools, such as Colorado Technical University, a for-profit school with over 90 percent of its students enrolled online, spent less than 10 percent on instruction.


The authors of the report concluded that online colleges could afford to reduce their tuition rates.

"The authors of the report concluded that online colleges could afford to reduce their tuition rates."

Based on what I've seen with TESU, they definitely should.

I don't think TESU would have been counted as an online college because it's a public university with state funding. Regardless, TESU's in-state and out-of-state tuition rates are far below average. They just have an unconventional way of charging tuition by having a flat rate similar to competency-based programs.

True. I was referring specifically to the level of quality I've seen with the actual courses I've done at TESU, though. TESU has it's place, but the actual courses are lacking in my opinion.

Also:
"Arizona State University is one example of a for-profit public institution that offers online degrees."


This statement from the article is false.

LOL. A lot of people conflate having a lot of online students with being for-profit. Journalists are always bad at writing education articles, so it's best to click on the link to the study.
