EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has released the 2019 edition of the Best Online Colleges in Pennsylvania.

Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/07/2019 -- EDsmart's ranking of the best online colleges in Pennsylvania is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based primarily on affordability, while also considering factors such as graduation and retention rates according to NCES College Navigator reporting.

"As online college classes become more prevalent, 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 in Pennsylvania rankings allow 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 high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates."
