GEORGETOWN, Ky., Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TheBestSchools.org, a preeminent online publication for ranking schools and degree programs, has published its 2019 ranking of colleges and universities with the most impressive and comprehensive online degree programs:
The 50 Best Online Colleges & Universities 2019
TheBestSchools.org draws upon its leadership in school rankings to formulate one of the most respected and widely cited college and university rankings available today. As a member of both the American Council on Education and the National Association for College Admission Counseling, TheBestSchools.org upholds the highest standards to meet the requirements of more than one million monthly visitors and to help them find the best school for their needs.
"Time and again, students tell me the greatest benefit of a ranking list is learning about schools they've never heard of. With thousands of colleges to choose from, it's easy for students to feel lost in a sea of choices." says college admissions expert Dr. Patrick O'Connor. "Rankings give students an organized way to learn about new college options and compare them to the options they've already reviewed."
For 2019, merit factors considered in this ranking of the top, accredited, nonprofit, online colleges and universities include academic excellence, scholarly strength of faculty, online teaching methods, tuition costs, reputation, awards, regional accreditation, financial aid, and the range of online bachelor's degree programs.
"Students today find that online college may offer both cost savings and a better fit for their busy work and personal schedules. Our latest ranking reflects this need for simplifying student's lives," says Dan Edelen, marketing director for TheBestSchools.org. "For 2019, we revamped the user experience of our best online colleges and universities ranking with a more accessible and easier-to-use layout. Now, at a glance, students can find the essential school information they need to make better-informed choices about their education."
