Marylhurst was ranked #6 in Best Online Schools in Oregon for 2017 by Accredited Schools Online.
All four-year institutions on the Best Online Schools in Oregon list are accredited at the institutional level, private nonprofit or public schools, and offer at least one online bachelor’s or master’s degree. Each school was then ranked according to its peer-based-value (PBV), comparing the cost of a program to the cost of other programs with a similar qualitative score and cost. In this way, PBV rankings denote an overall value of a college or degree program.
Marylhurst University was recognized for its relatively low price, accessibility to financial aid, diversity of programs offered, and low student-to-teacher ratio, leading to more one-on-one time for each student.
In addition, Accredited Schools Online noted Marylhurst’s robust career and life planning services, as well as its Credit for Prior Learning program, which awards academic credit for college-level learning gained outside the classroom.
