List of Online Community Colleges

Community colleges offer the best deals in online associate degrees if cost concerns you. Online community colleges, which are funded by your tax dollars, are dedicated to providing work training, continuing education and online certificates in hot careers such as health care, medical coding and records, legal assisting, and computer programming.

State residents typically pay the lowest tuition for online courses, though some states also allow non-residents to enroll in classes online at a reduced rate.

Cost can be as low as $75 per credit — often two to three times cheaper than online associate degrees and certificates offered by private two-year college systems.
