Online Colleges Universities
For those seeking an online Christian education, the options can be overwhelming. As online education continue to grow in popularity and credibility, more and more Christian colleges and universities are offering online college degrees.
Considering only those online Christian colleges and universities accredited by recognized and respected accrediting agencies, we investigated which online Christian schools were explicit about providing a biblically rooted, Christ-centered online education experience. From there, we relied on the following criteria to generate our rankings: student satisfaction (as measured by graduation and retention rates), peer and instructional quality (as measured by acceptance rate and student-teacher ratio), affordability (as measured by tuition costs and availability of financial aid), and credibility (as measured by years of accreditation, reputation, awards and job placement record).
Ohio Christian University provides its students with “a holistic, Christ-centered, biblically integrated education in the Wesleyan tradition.” Offering online associate and bachelor degrees in business, leadership, ministry, psychology and counseling through its AIM Adult Degree Program, Ohio Christian University has established itself as a leader in online Christian education. Competitive admissions and a student-to-faculty ratio of 15 to 1 make Ohio Christian University a top choice for an online Christian degree.
Founded in 1889, Saint Leo is the oldest Catholic higher education institution in Florida. With 16, 000 students enrolled around the globe, the university is a leader in online education and one of the largest providers of higher education for members of the U.S. military. As a religious-based institution, all online undergraduates must take three religion or philosophy courses as general education requirements, though not necessarily on Christian theology. With 15 undergraduate majors and around 40 distinct graduate degrees and certifications, St. Leo brings its experience and heritage as an established university to online education.
