IS AN ONLINE FORMAT COMPARABLE TO ON-CAMPUS FORMAT?
Yes. Numerous studies have proven that online learners perform as well as or better than their on-campus counterparts. In the book The No Significant Difference Phenomenon, author Thomas L.

Where a difference was identified in recent studies, it generally favored the online student.
