2012 Non-Profit Online College Rankings
While for-profit universities—schools operated by private, profit-seeking businesses—long dominated the online education landscape, more and more traditional and public universities have been creating and expanding online programs. Now many local, community colleges offer online programs, as do many state schools.
To help students who are trying to choose the right school, we have put together this list of the top 25 online, non-profit schools. We've collected data that we think are important for making the right education decision like accreditation, graduation rate, tuition fees, student loan repayment rate, and more.
