To help consumers make an informed decision based on factors that matter the most—cost and credibility—GetEducated.com reveals a list of the "Top Best Buys" nationwide for regionally accredited online bachelors and masters degree programs.
The Fall 2010 Best Buy list, for example, ranks the most affordable online bachelors degrees in healthcare. These rankings are based on a review of 32 different undergraduate degrees from 22 regionally accredited online colleges, all at a cost of under $45,000.
These college rankings were calculated by reviewing and comparing tuition and distance learning fees. Universities do not pay to be included in these rankings.
