Most Affordable Online Computer Information System Degree Programs

 

Rankings Note: These online college rankings are based on a GetEducated Spring 2017 review of regionally accredited online bachelor's in CIS 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 bachelor’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 bachelor'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 bachelor’s degree in computer information systems will be undertaken in Spring 2019.
