Note: These rankings for the most affordable degrees in Masters in Teaching are based off of a Fall 2011 Get Educated review of regionally accredited or candidate online degree programs. 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 Get Educated, please contact us for inclusion. Each Best Buy list is calculated every two years. The next Best Buy rankings for online masters in teaching will be undertaken Fall 2013.
