ClassesUSA Expands Its Commitment to Adult Education With the Addition of a Campus-based Directory
The leader in online higher-education information offers users more research and resource options
New York, July 11, 2006 ClassesUSA®, an Experian company and the Internets premier destination site for adults interested in online degree programs, today announced the launch of a campus-based portal on its Web site, allowing users to find specific school and program options by location. The expansion demonstrates the companys commitment to helping busy professionals fulfill their personal and professional goals by offering yet another avenue of educational opportunities.
Users enter a postal ZIP Code and select their career interest to access detailed listings and profiles of leading institutions in their area that offer diplomas, certificates and specialized degrees that can be completed at local college and university campuses. ClassesUSAs campus directories are categorized into high-demand industries including culinary arts, business, design, photography, education, health care, information technology, marketing, nursing, computer programming and more.
This enhancement enables ClassesUSA to provide a wealth of resources about college and university campus programs as well as online programs, explained Jordon Keltz, president of ClassesUSA. Our mission is to empower adults with educational information that is relevant to their goals and lifestyles.
Survey upon survey reveals that educational attainment directly correlates with ones professional value and lifetime earning potential. A recent study by the U.S. Census Bureau revealed that over an adults working life, those with a bachelors degree can earn up to $2.1 million; a masters degree holder can earn up to $2.5 million.
In addition to serving adult learners, ClassesUSA also maintains its position and reputation as a leading education marketing partner by maximizing the enrollment and recruitment efforts of colleges, universities and other learning institutions. Known for both quality and volume, ClassesUSA leverages advanced technologies and data from QAS®, an Experian company. The companys QuickAddress® software, a world-leading data verification tool, ensures that ClassesUSA-user-entered address information is verified and qualified while the user is in session.
ClassesUSA is part of Experian InteractiveSM and the Webs leading higher-education online portal. Each month, more than 1 million adults visit the site, which boasts more than 250 accredited college and university partners.
