Analysis of Overall Program Excellence Pinpoints Top 21 Colleges with Online Programs

The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has announced the best online colleges and universities in Oregon for 2017. 12 four-year schools made the list, with Oregon State University, University of Oregon, Linfield College—McMinnville Campus, Willamette University and Western Oregon University taking the top five spots. Of the 9 two-year colleges that were also commended, Linn-Benton Community College, Chemeketa Community College, Klamath Community College, Mt. Hood Community College and Southwestern Oregon Community College were recognized as the top five schools.

“Some students have scheduling or geographical limitations that prevent them from earning a degree in a traditional classroom setting,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of “These Oregon schools address those problems by offering online programs that give all students access to high-quality, flexible learning options that suits their unique needs.”

To earn a spot on the Community for Accredited Online Schools list, colleges and universities must be accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also ranked based on data points such as the availability of financial aid, graduation rates, academic and student services and student/teacher ratios.
