What Institutions Offer Distance Education?

The institutions that offer distance education programs are almost as varied as the programs themselves. Programs are available through traditional U.S. colleges and universities, "virtual" universities, two-year junior or community colleges, and professional bodies, as well as through private corporations and other organizations. Virtual universities offer no campus-based programs at all; every program they run is a distance education program. The number of virtual universities is increasing all the time, and most hold the same kind of accreditation as traditional, campus-based institutions. (See "Accreditation.")
