More Than 25 Colleges Honored for Overall Quality, Programs, Resources

The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has compiled a list of the best colleges and universities with online programs in Louisiana for 2017. Of the 20 four-year schools that were ranked, Tulane University of Louisiana, Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College, Loyola University New Orleans and Louisiana Tech University secured the top five institutions. Louisiana’s top six two-year schools were also included on the list, with Delgado Community College, Southern University Shreveport and Bossier Parish Community College scoring highest.

“For many students, earning a degree in a traditional classroom setting can be difficult, especially when working a full-time job or living far away from campus,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org. “These Louisiana schools have outstanding online programs that meet the needs of students who need more flexible scheduling.”

To earn a spot on the Best Online Schools list, colleges and universities in Louisiana must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit entities. Each college is also judged based on such criteria as student/teacher ratios, employment services, student counseling, graduation rates and financial aid availability.
