Park University Online Degree Programs Ranked Among Most Affordable in the U.S.

Parkville, Mo.—Nov. 18, 2013 — Two Park University online degree programs have been ranked among the most affordable online programs in the nation by OnlineU, a free and comprehensive guide that enables students to compare all online colleges in the United States. Park’s online Bachelor of Science in Management/Human Resources program is ranked No. 15 (tie) and Park’s online Master of Education program is ranked No. 16.

OnlineU’s goal is to help students accomplish their educational goals in a financially responsible manner by providing resources that are user friendly, and otherwise, not easily accessible. The rankings were compiled based on annual tuition and fees for online bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees, and segmented by subject for prospective students.

This is the third ranking Park has received recently for its affordability. Park was ranked the seventh-most affordable university/college nationwide — and first in the Midwest — for tuition and fees, according to U.S. News and World Report. Also this year, Park ranked No. 2 among the nation’s private colleges/universities and No. 24 overall for most affordable online colleges by Affordable College Online. Along with affordability, Park ranks No. 10 for quality of online programs according to a ranking by Guide to Online Schools.
