Edudemic Names Top Online Colleges in California

Edudemic has released the 2015 Online College Report, a guide for students that ranks the best online colleges and universities in each state.

(PRWEB) November 11, 2014

Traditional universities have embraced online education. It’s no longer the territory of for-profit universities with dubious track records. There are now 37 universities in California that offer some type of degree online. Edudemic evaluated and ranked these schools to understand the best online degree programs in California. These individual state rankings are part of Edudemic’s 2015 Online College Report.

The #1 online college in California is California State University – Chico, a large public school with a low tuition rate. They secured the top ranking in the state due to high graduation and retention rates, creative ways to deliver career services to online students, and a strong national reputation.

But not all of our top schools are big public universities. Hope International University (#2), National University (#3), and California Baptist University (#5) all scored very well, despite being private schools with comparatively higher tuition rates. This is due to the wide variety of online degree programs that they offer, as well as strong financial aid programs.

Online Education Defined

Many universities offer some kind of coursework online. But there is a difference between offering a couple of classes online and preparing a traditional university to handle the needs of online-only students. That’s why Edudemic only looked at schools that offer at least four, 100% fully online Bachelors degrees. No lines at the bookstore. No late nights at the library. No campus visits, ever.

The Best Online Schools in California

Out of all the schools in California, Edudemic took a close look at 13 universities that offer at least four Bachelors degrees online. Data was originally sourced from the National Center of Education Statistics (NCES). The Edudemic methodology incorporated performance measurements (like graduation and retention rates), cost factors (like in-state tuition and financial aid packages), career services specifically for online students, availability of information on their website, and much more. They verified all of the online degree programs, career service support, and financial aid services through written surveys, phone calls, and external research. Between written surveys, follow up phone calls, and additional research, Edudemic has compiled the most comprehensive evaluation of online education in California to date.
