Marylhurst University’s online programs were ranked #1 in Oregon by Accredited Schools Online in February 2016.
“We wanted to recognize schools that are implementing convenient and cutting-edge technological learning opportunities to all students,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of Accredited Schools Online. “These schools are not only offering exceptional programs, but they have expanded their program excellence to the much-desired online environment.”
Ranked schools meet a number of criteria and metrics, including:
- Must be a public or private, not-for-profit institution
- Number of subject areas covered by program offerings
- Student-to-faculty ratio
- Percentage of students receiving financial aid
Accredited Schools Online has distinguished its ranking scale by the use of Peer-Based Value, or PBV. The PBV score compares the cost of each program to the cost of similar programs with the same qualitative score.
