Monday, February 27, 2017

EUGENE, Ore., Feb. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2016-2017 rankings for the Best Online Colleges and Universities.

Online education is the number one way for any working professional to advance in their career. While the idea of taking on a full degree online might be scary to some, it is fast becoming a popular way to get an undergraduate or graduate degree.

"The need for accredited online universities has grown exponentially. Even when institutional enrollment numbers decline, accredited online university programs steadily increase, which makes selecting from the best online colleges an important task. The best online universities are adapting to the evolving digital learning world," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, remarked at the ranking's release. "Because digital learning is becoming so important, this ranking was created for working professionals and busy students to continue their education while maintaining their lives."

The College Choice 2016-2017 ranking for Best Online Colleges and Universities was created using a number of factors that will help students make the right decision for them. These include accreditation, student retention rates, financial aid offerings, overall tuition cost, online education features, and more. All of this information was gathered by using a school's website and online portal and independent statistics sites, with schools that have a faculty trained in online learning take top honors.
