This resource from the Affordable Colleges Foundation provides free higher education tools for current and future college students and their families, recently published research on all the not-for-profit universities and colleges in California that offer online college programs. Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions. Yet today, many of the most established not-for-profit state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students. This data set is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS.  A few of the key features on the page:

- Researched and published online, accredited, not-for-profit institutions, sorted by affordability
