There are certain qualities of an online university that are important. First, you want to make sure the school offers an accredited online bachelors degree. Accreditation means a lot of things, namely that you will be provided with a solid education, respected instructors, and a financial aid program. You will also want an online university that offers degrees in your desired field of study. Certain colleges focus on specific degrees, such as a bachelor of education. If you are interested in taking strictly online courses or taking both online and campus courses, you should inquire within the school on that as well. Contacting an admissions counselor will give you more insight on the qualities of the online university.
