In 2016, an estimated 20.5 million students attended college, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. And according to EdTech, one-quarter of college students are enrolled in online courses. At a time when higher education enrollments are flattening or even declining, online education remains a bright spot. But to stand out in an increasingly competitive marketplace, colleges and universities need to understand how to best serve this population.

Learn how students choose a program, how they feel about alternative credentials, what regrets they have, how quickly they make a decision and more.
