The College Network
The College Network is a private educational company that partners with universities to offer top-notch degree programs and certificates delivered entirely online. Degrees available range from associate’s to doctoral level and certificate programs. Areas of study available include health care, nursing, business, criminal justice, fire science, human resources, project management, marketing, lean six sigma and legal studies.
The College Network also makes test prep review materials for nursing programs. All programs are accredited and are estimated at 50% cost of traditional degree programs. Students complete a portion of their degree program through The College Network, and in no case is campus attendance required during this portion of the program. The remaining portion is completed through enrollment in the partner university. Students may earn their degree in less time than traditional programs while in the comfort of their home. The College Network is based in Indiana and has been in operation since 2002.
