Note: These Masters in Special Education rankings are based on a Fall 2011 Get Educated review of regionally accredited and regional candidate schools offering online degrees. Tuition and fees (total costs) stated are valid for that time period (Fall 2011). Profiles for each distance degree in our 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 option.  Actual costs will vary by student. Factors such as transfer credits at entrance, prerequisite requirements specific to each degree, and financial aid availability will affect your final purchase price.


Colleges do not pay to be included in these online university rankings.  These rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited and regional candidate university which offers a degree that is offered at least 80% at a distance and open to the public.  There is no cost to be included in the Get Educated online degree affordability ranking surveys or to use Get Educated award badges should your degree appear on these rankings.


If your online university is regionally accredited and not currently reviewed by the Get Educated affordable online degrees survey, please contact us for inclusion. Each Best Buys list is calculated every two years. The next Best Buys in Masters in Special Education rankings will be compiled in Fall 2013.
