AffordableCollegesOnline.org has released its list of the Best Online Colleges in Ohio for 2016.

Sinclair College, Columbus State Community College, Belmont College, Cincinnati State Technical and Community College and Clark State Community College are recognized as Ohio’s top five two-year online programs. In all, more than 40 schools were recognized as part of the lists.

"Enrollment growth at Ohio’s colleges and universities was one of the highest in the nation from 2006 to 2011,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of AffordableCollegesOnline.org. "As today’s students apply for college, they are also looking at the flexibility online learning offers.

Colleges are required to meet several basic requirements to qualify for a spot on the Best Online Colleges in Ohio lists.

There are also strict affordability standards each school must meet: two-year schools must provide in-state tuition no greater than $5,000 annually and four-year schools must provide in-state tuition no greater than $25,000 annually. Each college is ranked based on an in-depth analysis of more than a dozen value-based data points, including financial aid availability and graduation rates.
