Our 50 Best Colleges for Online Bachelor’s Degrees ranking highlights the best non-profit, regionally accredited colleges and universities at which to pursue an online education leading to a Bachelor’s Degree. While our Students Before Profits Awards rank online programs in a variety of disciplines according to affordability, this ranking utilizes a variety of publicly available data including: tuition rates, U.S. News scores, percentage of full-time students receiving scholarship or grant aid from the college, number of bachelor’s degree programs offered, and student to teacher ratios. This data was put through a carefully weighted formula that assigns each school under evaluation a score of 1 to 100. The top 50 scoring schools are featured in this ranking. As always, only regionally accredited nonprofit or public schools were eligible for this ranking.
BENEFITS OF AN ONLINE BACHELOR’S DEGREE PROGRAM
Because educational attainment remains strongly correlated with unemployment rates and salary earnings, furthering ones formal education is an important step in achieving success and stability. For many people, this means pursuing a four-year, bachelor’s level degree. Offered in a wide variety of disciplines, a bachelor’s degree enables students to enter into a wider range of challenging and rewarding careers as well as pursue further study at the graduate level.
For many career paths, a bachelor’s degree is a minimum education requirement. A four-year college degree provides a credential to prospective employers, which shows that you are committed, as well as knowledgeable, in your field. Furthermore, four-year degrees are also linked to higher pay. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2013, the median weekly earnings of someone with a degree at the bachelor’s level was $1,108, which is $281 more than the national average and $457 more than those of individuals with only a high school diploma. Also, a correlation has been established between unemployment rates and level education which suggests that in general, the more advanced ones level of education, the less likely they are to become unemployed. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the unemployment rate in 2013 was only 4% among those with a four-year degree—a percentage that is 2.1% less than the national average, and 3.5% less than among those with only a high school diploma.
If you are at a stage of life in which pursuing your bachelor’s degree through more traditional avenues is difficult—whether you have a rigorous full-time work schedule, or are caring for and raising a family—we at Nonprofit Colleges Online believe that online programs of study are among your best options for furthering your education. Online degree programs at the bachelor’s level typically utilize asynchronous coursework that allows students to login, complete coursework, watch prerecorded lectures, and participate in discussion forums as able. The flexibility of remote study also allows students to select the degree program that is right for them regardless of their proximity to the school because most online bachelor’s degree programs do not require on-campus visits. Furthermore, as tuition rates continue to skyrocket, online programs frequently offer lower tuition rates than their on-campus counter parts. This means that students typically receive a greater return on their investment in their education by completing online programs of study versus traditional programs. While these programs are definitely more flexible and have the capacity to accommodate individuals with diverse and demanding daily schedules, they are no less academically challenging and students in online programs will receive the same robust education that traditional on-campus counterparts receive.
While we stand by our claim that online study is an excellent option for furthering your education it is also important that prospective students understand that online coursework is different from taking a face-to-face course. While students do not need to physically attend classes regularly throughout their week, online courses require students to regularly login to the online course system to complete assignments, dialogue with classmates, and stay abreast of course materials. This requires students to be self-guided and disciplined. Students must also be competent readers and writers as class “attendance” typically consists of engaging in written conversation with peers through an online discussion forum.
