Missouri's Best Online Schools for 2017

San Francisco (PR WEB) April 7, 2017 - The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has compiled its list of Missouri’s best online colleges and universities for 2017. Of the 31 four-year schools that made the list, Webster University, University of Missouri Columbia, University of Central Missouri, Missouri State University Springfield and Lindenwood University scored the highest. Of the 8 two-year colleges that also made the list, Crowder College, Jefferson College, Mineral Area College and State Fair Community College were top scoring schools.

“Online certificates and degrees are increasingly popular option, especially for students who are unable to complete their education in a traditional classroom environment because of scheduling or location,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org. “These Missouri schools have distinguished themselves by offering the best online college programs in the state, maintaining high quality and accreditation standards and providing flexibility with a variety of degrees online.”

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