The best colleges with online programs in the state of Alabama have been ranked by The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information. Among the 19 four-year schools that made the list, Auburn University, University of Alabama, University of Alabama at Birmingham, Samford University and Judson College came in as the top five schools. Nine of the state’s two-year schools also ranked, with Wallace State Community College Hanceville, Gadsden State Community College, Bevill State Community College, Wallace Community College Selma and Lurleen B.

“Interest in online schools in Alabama is quickly growing,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of “The schools on our list offer high-quality online options for students who not only want greater flexibility, but also the reliability of attending an accredited higher education institution.”

Schools on the Best Online Schools list must meet specific base requirements to be included: each must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit.
