Career College Central

Distance learning revenues in a sample of DL programs grew by a mean of 15.52% in 2006, according to The Survey of Distance Learning Programs in Higher Education, 2007-2008 edition, just published by Primary Research Group. More than a third of the enrollment increase came from increased enrollment from students that already attend traditional classes.

The study is based on data from 45 higher education distance learning programs, with mean revenues of approximately $2.35 million. Data is broken out by size and type of college, for public and private colleges and for high, medium and low growth enrollment distance learning programs.
The 200-page report presents more than 750 tables of data exploring many facets of distance learning programs, including revenues, cost structure, rates of pay, student demographics, program growth rates, current and planned use of new technologies, catering to special populations, and many other financial and business aspects of managing distance learning programs.
