SCU Appears on Most Affordable List


Southwestern Christian University was named one of Oklahoma’s most affordable online colleges for the second consecutive year by Affordable Colleges Online (AC Online).

SCU was ranked 11th on the website’s list of Best Online Colleges in Oklahoma for 2015. The list ranks universities based on online tuition rate, count of online bachelor’s degrees available in field, student-faculty ratio, six-year graduation rate, percentage of students receiving financial aid, academic and career counseling services, job placement for graduates, acceptance rate, loan default rate and AC Online’s peer-based value metric (PBV).

"When it comes to online learning, these schools set the bar," AC Online founder and CEO Dan Schuessler said of the schools that made the list. “These programs have made attending college accessible and affordable while maintaining rigorous academic standards of excellence and providing support services for their students.”

AC Online was founded in 2012 with the primary goals of helping make college affordable and spreading the importance of accreditation. To learn more about AC Online, click here.
