Anna-Rebekah Orr, site editor at Christian Universities Online, states that the goal of the ranking is to highlight schools that provide the best complete online graduate degree programs. Orr says, "There is a wonderful benefit to the ever-increasing online educational offerings-- with mutual benefits for both students and institutions. Online programs allow students to attend school from their own home with minimal impact to their existing schedule." Often, the decision to continue an education beyond a Bachelor's Degree leads to difficult decisions. Among the most important is the choice between full-time school or part-time, course by course. Each option has significant ramifications and the decision process can be agonizing. Fortunately, there is now a third option of distance learning. To assist with your investigation into this option, Christian Universities Online (CUO) is pleased to offer the Top 25 Graduate Online Christian Colleges and Universities. Each school listed offers 100% online graduate degree programs and are intentionally Christian in their structure and policies. CUO seeks to present graduate schools that excel in categories of selectivity, student interaction, available financial aid and overall student satisfaction.
