Troy University has been named one of the country's 15 most
affordable universities offering online educations.
The ranking comes in a new listing by
AffordableCollegesOnline.org named "Most Affordable Online Colleges," and
identifies the 54 colleges or universities nationwide with distance learning
options, affordable tuition and fees, and alumni who earn top dollar
immediately after graduation. TROY is ranked at the number 14 spot.
"In today's higher education climate, affordability is just
as important to students as accessibility and, at TROY, we are always mindful
of cost and quality in providing the very best programs to our students," said
Dr. Lance Tatum, Vice-Chancellor of the University's Global Campus, the arm of
the University that provides online education and oversees operations outside
the state of Alabama.
"This ranking provides a level of validation for our
method," he said."
For an institution to make the list, it must have a maximum
net price of tuition and fees of $15,000; be a fully accredited non-profit
institution; be a four-year degree-granting institution; have at least one
course available online and students must have a starting salary of at least $31,000
upon graduation. ACO relied on information supplied by NCES, IPEDS, Carnegie
Classification and Payscale.com.
The University's eTroy provides online education to a broad
spectrum of students, including all-online degree programs. It has been a leader
in online and distance education since the 1950's when it began delivering
courses at nearby Fort Rucker. Today, the University operates four campuses in
Alabama, and 23 sites in seven U.S. states and six countries in the Middle East
and southeast Asia. Worldwide enrollment is more than 25,000.
