As College Admissions Decrease, More Students Attend Online Campuses

More Students Apply for Online Degrees as Colleges Accept Lower Percentage of Students

HUMBLE, TX--(Marketwire - October 23, 2007) - Newly released admissions figures show that colleges nationwide are accepting a lower percentage of students than in the past, leading more students to apply for online college degrees said the nation's leading online university, Ashwood University.

Decreases in student acceptances appear to be a result of smaller college graduating classes, fewer slots at colleges for incoming freshman and more students in high school applying to a greater number of schools in order to increase their chances of college admission.

With the admissions process more competitive than ever and fewer students getting in to their first choice college, more are turning to online campuses such as Ashwood University, where students can earn online college degrees for less time and money.

"At Ashwood University, we offer busy adults their college degrees based on their work and life experience," said Ashwood University marketing representative, Matthew Smith. "Our college degrees reward our students for their life experience by providing them with more job opportunities and better pay."
