LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Affordable Colleges Online, a resource dedicated to online learning and college affordability, has published its annual rankings of the Best In State Online Colleges for 2015.

Eastern Oregon University tops the list for Oregon.

Students have many options when choosing an online degree program, and the schools on the list represent the best in outstanding academic programs and support services.

“For 30 years EOU has been known nationwide for being a pioneer in the distance education sector,” said Sarah Witte, interim provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. “We are honored by this distinction of quality programs led by quality faculty.”

EOU offers more than a dozen online majors and minors in a variety of fields, including a new undergraduate degree in emergency medical services administration and online master of business administration cohort beginning this fall.

“As online classes become more prevalent, it is important to acknowledge the colleges and universities that go above and beyond,” said Dan Schuessler, founder and CEO of Affordable Colleges Online. “Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education.”

Students have many paths from which to choose and making an informed decision can seem like a monumental task. Affordable Colleges Online hopes to guide students by acknowledging the schools that offer the most support in terms of career counseling, job placement and variety of programming.

“When it comes to online learning, these schools set the bar,” Schuessler said. “These programs have made attending college accessible and affordable while maintaining rigorous academic standards of excellence and providing support services for their students.”
