EDsmart Announces 2023 Best Online Colleges & Universities

EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and independent rankings, has released the 2023 edition of the Best Online Colleges & Universities to help prospective students and their families research the top online colleges and universities in the nation.

EDsmart’s ranking of the Best Online Colleges & Universities is the most comprehensive and well-rounded. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based on four main data points in four categories: affordability, student satisfaction, academic quality, and student outcome.

“It is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond,” said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart. “Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education.”

“The Best Online Colleges & Universities ranking allows students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals,” said EDsmart’s spokesperson. “Beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place a high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates, and post-graduation earnings.”

The EDsmart 2023 ranking for the Best Online Colleges & Universities ranks the University of Michigan #1 as the best online college in the nation with the University of North Florida and Villanova University following.
