The Latest College Rankings

by Daniel Bennett

Online Education Database, or OEDb, released the latest rankings of colleges recently. Unlike the other college rankings, such as the CCAP Forbes and USNWR ones, OEDb ranks only the online colleges. It uses metrics such as acceptance rate, financial aid, graduation rate, peer Web citations, retention rate, scholarly citations, student-faculty ratio, and years accredited.

The top 10 online colleges, according to the OEDb rankings, are:
1 Nova Southeastern University
2 Regent University
3 Champlain College
4 Upper Iowa University
5 LeTourneau University
6 Liberty University
7 Grand Canyon University
8 Dickinson State University
9 Salem International University
10 Keiser University
