The Online Degree Database (ODD) is offering partnerships to colleges and universities with online degree programs. This unique database, established in early 2017, holds degree details for over 3,800 online programs. Program details are taken directly from online program websites by highly trained education experts. Data collected include institution name, state, degree type and name, website address, concentrations, total credits, cost per credit in-state / out-of-state and total tuition, professional accreditation, months to complete degree, detailed prerequisite and admissions requirements, details about residency requirements, and more.
The data are available to students researching online degrees through the Online Degree Database website. The website makes it easy for students to search for their degree of interest. Students use the interactive search tool to identify the program characteristics that are most important to them. They receive a free report that contains the institution names, degree names, and live links to the online program websites for programs that meet their criteria from the universe of available programs.
The Online Degree Database website greatly improves the student experience of researching online degree programs over existing online education directories, which were designed to generate leads, and have out-of-date and limited program details. The ODD website makes it easy for researching students to create a short-list of their best online program options, saving them weeks of researching on their own while providing them with information from the most comprehensive source of available online programs in the market today. It also levels the playing field for online programs to compete based on program characteristics, not advertising budgets.
Institutions that choose to partner with the Online Degree Database enjoy prioritized listing above non-partners in the free reports where they appear, have additional program characteristics shared in the report, and receive an annual competitive set including all variables collected for the universe of online competing programs. Partners may also provide the ODD with updates on program changes throughout the year, to ensure that their program data is always up-to-date for researching students. Partners also enjoy a 25% discount on syndicated studies and consulting services from the Online Degree Database.
Partnerships are $200 per program per year through September 1, 2018. After September 1, 2018 the partnership rate will increase to $250 per program per year. Institutions offering more than 20 online programs qualify for a discount. Contact [email protected] for more information.
