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

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 Degree in Psychology rankings will be undertaken in Fall 2016.
