Rankings Note: These online college rankings are based on a Get Educated Spring 2014 review of regionally accredited online master's programs in education. Tuition and fees stated were valid at the time of collection and are specific to the online learning program. Profiles for each online masters degree programs in our directory may reflect a slightly different cost based on different editorial update schedules.

The published cost is an estimated sticker price for the entire degree and typically reflects the most affordable online degree option. Actual costs vary by student. Factors such as transfer credits, prerequisite courses, professional licensing and financial aid availability will affect final cost.

Editorial Note: Online colleges do NOT pay to be included in any Get Educated online degree rankings survey. These best online college rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited or candidate college that offers a master's degree that is available at least 80 percent through online learning and that is open to enrollment by the public.

If your online college is regionally accredited and not currently reviewed by Get Educated, please contact us for inclusion. Each online degree ranking list
is calculated every two years. The next Best Affordable Online Master's in Education rankings will be undertaken in Spring 2016.
