Want an online master’s in computer science that is regionally accredited and affordable? Get Educated’s “Best Buy” rankings reveal the 45 most affordable online computer science and information technology master’s degrees for cost-conscious students.

This ranking of affordable online degrees was calculated by reviewing and analyzing tuition and distance learning fees at 77 regionally accredited graduate schools in the U.S. that offer a total of 115 online master’s in computer science.

The survey includes a wide range of online computer science degree specialties like computer forensics, web design, information security, database management and programming.

Rankings Note: These online university rankings are based on a Get Educated Spring 2013 review of regionally accredited online master’s in computer science and information technology. Tuition and fees stated were valid at the time of collection and are specific to the online learning program. Profiles for each online master’s degree program 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 universities do NOT pay to be included in any Get Educated online degree rankings survey. These online university rankings are editorially independent, open to any regionally accredited or candidate university that offers a master’s degree available at least 80 percent through online learning and is open to enrollment by the public.

If your online university 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 Computer Science rankings will be undertaken in Spring 2015.
