Schools & Enrollment
Extensive research into distance learning educational offerings and opportunities for the incarcerated has been done by the Prison Education Foundation. Today, many schools offer distance learning; however, most of them require internet access, which is impossible for an inmate.
We selected only schools that are fully accredited by a regional accrediting association, offer excellent programs leading to a degree, have a distance learning program that requires no internet access or residency requirements and, offer reasonable tuition rates.
In some instances, an accredited school may offer an excellent degree program through traditional correspondence, with the exception of five or six classes that are available only on-line. The Prison Education Foundation has structured those degree programs to make it easy to pick up the specific courses needed from another accredited school via traditional correspondence and transfer those earned credits toward the degree program, thus effectively overcoming the on-line obstacle that incarceration presents.
In other instances, a student may desire to earn an Associate's Degree in one subject (eg. Biblical Studies) from one university, then transfer those credit hours to another university toward a Bachelor's Degree in a different subject, such as Business Administration.
Through the research and work of the Prison Education FoundationTM, many good educational degrees are now readily available through several excellent, properly accredited, colleges and universities.
