EIU Earns “Best Online College” Distinction from National Organization


Eastern Illinois University was recently ranked as a "Best Online College in Illinois" by Affordable Colleges Online, a national organization that uses data from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and the National Center for Education Statistics.

Universities on the list were selected for "going above and beyond the industry standard to help make online education programs an excellent option,” according to Dan Schuessler, the organization's CEO and founder.

Affordable Colleges Online (AC Online) surveys over 7,500 colleges annually, and its rankings take into consideration such metrics as average in-state net price, the number and variety of online programs offered, the student-teacher ratio, and the availability of  academic, career counseling, and job placement services for students and graduates.

EIU offers a diverse assortment of online undergraduate and graduate degree programs for students, continuing EIU’s tradition of excellence and student-focused educational programming while offering increased accessibility to college-aged and adult learners.
