Costs were valid at the time of collection (Fall 2011).

Note: These rankings of masters in educational leadership administration degrees are based on a Fall 2011 distance learning survey of regionally accredited (or regional accreditation candidate) universities. Tuition and fees stated are valid for that time period only (Fall 2011). Profiles for each distance degree in the Get Educated online college directory may reflect slightly different costs based on a different update schedule.

The published cost is an estimated sticker price for the entire online masters degree and typically reflects the most affordable, cheapest distance degree program. Factors such as transfer credits at entrance, prerequisite online course requirements, and financial aid will affect your final purchase price.


Colleges cannot pay to be included in the Get Educated online university rankings. These rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited university which offers a degree that is delivered at least 80% at a distance and open to the public. There is no cost to use the Get Educated Best Buy award badges, should your  degree appear on these rankings.

If your online university is regionally accredited and not currently
included in the Get Educated most affordable online degrees survey, please contact us for inclusion. Each Best Buy list is calculated every two years. The next Best Buys rankings for Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration will be undertaken in Fall 2013.
