The Good

  • Match Options
  • Free Service
  • Credit rollover

Match Options

Education Connection a referral program. It does not provide the education but rather helps you narrow down your best choices.

And there's no shortage of options in this regard. Education Connection can give individuals information about a limitless number of programs in every discipline imaginable. Students can find the right program for them for associate's, bachelor's, master's and doctorate degrees. Education Connection will show the interested student-to-be what is available for them in areas of study such as business, engineering, humanities, law and criminal justice, human services and more.

Free Service

It is completely free to use Education Connection's program matching tool. 

Credit Rollover

If a student already has credit from another institution, Education Connection can help the student find a college or university that will accept the previously-attained credit. Not all credits are transferable, but this service will help the student find the institution best suited to take the credits.

The Bad

  • Not A Certifying Body 

Not A Certifying Body 

Prospective students should understand that Education Connection is a matching tool rather than an online college that offers certificate programs itself. 

Along those lines, Education Connection cannot guarantee that you will be admitted to your matched programs. Each organization has its own enrollment and eligibility requirements which may include an interview, placement exams, prior educational or work experience, and, of course, tuition. 

The Bottom Line

There's no reason to search blindly for an online program when you can let Education Connection do the hard work for you. At the very least, your results might point you in a direction you may not have considered previously.
