Updated 10:16 AM CDT, Wed, May 08,2019, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has released the 2019 edition of the most affordable colleges offering online degree programs.

Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/08/2019 -- EDsmart's ranking of the most affordable colleges offering online degrees is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date.
