Affordable Colleges Online (ACO) began in 2012 with the goal of connecting students to affordable, high quality education. We aim to help students and parents identify colleges, programs, and scholarship opportunities that fit their academic and financial ambitions and needs. We believe that all students should enjoy access to affordable, high-quality educational opportunities.
Our free, in-depth resources include comprehensive guidebooks, student interviews, user-friendly search tools, federal datasets, college rankings, and additional materials created and vetted by experts in education.
Our guidebooks help students navigate difficult decisions, such as choosing an online college, selecting the right financial aid program, or deciding on a major. We also help students make the most of the college experience by providing resources on topics like college safety, mental health, and staying fit on campus. Our easy-to-use search tools help students narrow down their school options by degree level, location, and type of program. Our up-to-date college rankings help students find a school that best matches their budget, career goals, and lifestyle.
Our team is dedicated to giving you expert-driven, data-backed information covering education. At AffordableCollegesOnline, all pages are fact-checked by professionals and follow strict guidelines to ensure that content is timely, accurate, and free from bias. Read more about our process.
