I saw an ad earlier for an online university. It mentioned student debt and how online colleges were an affordable option. My guess is that online universities are probably getting very popular because of students being scared of being in so much debt.

Well, that is a good way to look at it but I assume the reason is more about convenience than debt. Are more students going for financial aid now more than ever before?

I am sure that price does factor in but many online colleges still require loans. Online community college courses might be a good way to stay out of debt and be convenient, but attending a state university online can still be expensive.
