2016-2017 Ranking Determines Best Online Programs for Cost, Quality in Health Sciences

Leading higher education information and resource provider is highlighting schools with top online health sciences degree programs in a new ranking for 2016-2017. Two lists compare four-year and two-year schools offering health science degree programs nationwide, determining which offer the best combination of cost and quality for students. Of the lists of top 100 colleges, the highest finishers among four-year schools include the University of Mississippi, Washburn University, Siena Heights University, Weber State University and Davenport University, while top two-year schools include East Mississippi Community College, Holmes Community College, Hutchinson Community College, Metropolitan Community College and Barton County Community College.

"Employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 19 percent, or much faster than the national average, from 2014 to 2024,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of “Students pursuing health science degrees can now find affordable, high quality learning options online through these schools, who are ultimately being highlighted here for their efforts to help students excel.” has several minimum eligibility requirements each school on their rankings must meet. Colleges must be accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions and must offer in-state tuition rates as follows: under $5,000 per year for two-year schools; under $25,000 per year for four-year schools. Those meeting eligibility requirements are then scored and ranked based on more than a dozen school-specific statistics, including financial aid offerings and graduation rates.
