Black Colleges and Universities Are Increasing Their Online Presence

According to an analysis by Roy L. Beasley, an academic systems analyst at Howard University in Washington, D.C., only 19 of the 89 historically black colleges and universities with four-year bachelor’s degree programs offer full-time online programs for either bachelor’s or master’s degrees. In 2006 only 12 HBCUs offered degree programs that could be completed entirely online.
