The U.S. Department of Education, National Center for Education Statistics reported in October 2011 that students studying computer science and business had a higher enrollment in distance education courses than those enrolled in other degree programs. The average online enrollment for other degrees is 20 percent, compared with 24 percent for business degree seekers and 27 percent for computer science degree seekers. My Colleges and Careers provides valuable tools and services to help students in these degree fields, as well as in other fields, find online colleges that offer courses and full degree programs.
Enrollment in online degree programs was also higher for computer science and business students, at 8 percent and 6 percent respectively, compared to the 4 percent of all students who are enrolled in online degree programs. Other degrees that also had higher enrollment in at least one online course were general studies, education, and healthcare. Some careers, such as engineering, social science, natural science, math and agriculture had lower than average enrollment in online courses or degree programs.
