Note: These online degree rankings are based on a Get Educated Spring 2008 survey of regionally accredited and regional candidate distance learning masters degrees in engineering. Tuition and fees stated were valid at the time of collection (Spring 2008).  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 distance masters degree and typically reflects the most affordable online degree option.  Actual costs will vary by student. Factors such as transfer credits at entrance, admission prerequisites specific to each degree, and financial aid availability will affect your final cost. 

Colleges do not pay to be included in GetEducated.com’s online university rankings.  These rankings and reviews are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited or regional candidate university which offers an online degree program that is offered at least 80% at a distance and open to the public.  There is no cost to be included in GetEducated’s online university ranking surveys or to use GetEducated.com’s seals should your distance degree appear on these rankings.


If your online engineering school is regionally accredited and not currently reviewed or ranked by GetEducated please contact us for inclusion. Each specific affordability ranking list is calculated every two years. The next online engineering masters degree program rankings will be undertaken Spring 2010.
