This is an excellent time for online education, but not all online programs are created equal. Many online schools cater to different needs or constituents, such as working adults. And many schools hide fees making it difficult for prospective students to obtain a real cost assessment. That is why we created a ranking of the Best Value Online Colleges and Universities to help students identify reputable schools with real value.

To qualify for the Best Value Online Colleges and Universities ranking, institutions must have a Consensus Score, offer at least 3 bachelor's degree or bachelor's completion programs in an online or hybrid format, and be affordable. Schools are ranked according to their out-of-state tuition and fees.

The top three schools in the Best Value Online Colleges and Universities ranking for 2021 are (1) Eastern Illinois University, (2) University of North Dakota, and (3) Fitchburg State University. Next in the 50 top ranked schools are (in ranking order):
