GetEducated compared 70 psychology master’s programs from 40 regionally accredited online schools to create this Best Buy ranking. Our rankings reveal the most affordable options in the United States—34 online master’s in psychology for under $27,000.

Average Cost (In-state): $26,804.27
Least Expensive: Angelo State University ~$12,790.20
Most Expensive: John F Kennedy University ~$51,965

Our data-driven research creates a truly reliable system of scientific rankings. There’s no fancy formulas here. We meticulously calculate total full-time tuition—including any fees—for the most accurate total cost. Our rankings cannot be bought, and therefore factually showcase the cheapest online bachelor’s in psychology. The online psychology degrees listed above the gray dividing line are official 2016 “Best Buys” and cost less than the national average.

Rankings Note: These online college rankings are based on a GetEducated Fall 2016 review of regionally accredited online master's in psychology programs. Total cost includes full-time tuition and fees and was valid at the time of collection and specific to the online learning program. School profiles for the online master’s 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 online degree including fees. Actual costs may vary by student. Factors such as transfer credits, prerequisite courses, professional licensing and financial aid availability will affect final cost.

Editorial Note: Online schools do NOT pay to be included in any GetEducated online degree ranking. These 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 GetEducated, please contact us for inclusion. Each ranking list is calculated every two years. The next survey to identify the cheapest online master’s in psychology programs will be undertaken in Fall 2018.
