Maryland's Best Online Schools for 2017

San Francisco (PR WEB) April 3, 2017 - The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has determined Maryland’s best online colleges and universities for 2017. 16 four-year schools made the list, with Johns Hopkins University, University of Maryland College Park, Townson University, Notre Dame of Maryland and University of Maryland Baltimore County placing as the top five schools. Of the 13 two-year colleges also made the list, the top five spots were taken by Prince George’s Community College, The Community College of Baltimore County, Howard Community College, Anne Arundel Community College and Baltimore City Community College.

“Choosing an online program over a brick-and-mortar education is great for students with work and family priorities and those who don’t live close to campus,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of “These Maryland schools have demonstrated that remote students don’t have to sacrifice quality in pursuit of flexibility.”

To earn a spot on the “Best Online Schools in Maryland” list, colleges and universities must be accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also judged based on such metrics as student/teacher ratios, counseling resources, graduation rates and financial aid availability.
