Online Schools

Accredited Online Schools

Online colleges offer undergraduate degrees: bachelor’s and associate’s. Online universities also offer graduate degrees: master’s and doctorates. Research shows that consumers believe universities are more prestigious than colleges—they’re not, folks—but because people believe universities are “better,” many new for-profit online colleges call themselves “universities,” regardless of the kind of online degrees they offer.

Our online college experts have gathered data, rankings, and reviews on over 1,000 accredited online colleges and universities. If in-state tuition is important to you, start by chooing your state from the list on the left. If you’re looking for a certain school, begin by typing the name into the search box. Click on a listing to view school details like the percent admitted, total tuition cost, and degrees offered.
