Yale Joins the World of MOOCs, $7,000 Master’s Degree to Be Offered

Weekly News RoundupThe admissions landscape is always changing, and here at IvyWise we like to keep families informed on the latest news in college admissions and higher education. Check out some of the biggest stories in higher education from this past week:  

  • A new study conducted by NACAC shows rates of students attending college could be much higher if students received counseling beginning freshman year, rather than beginning junior or senior year.

  • Yale University announced they would begin offering online courses through Coursera.

  • In a huge step forward for online and affordable education, Georgia Tech, Udacity, and AT&T have teamed up to offer a maser’s degree in computer science for less than $7,000.

  • York University of Pennsylvania and the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor were added to U.S. News and World Report’s list of “unranked” schools after the magazine learned of each school reporting inflated admissions data for rankings.
