Drury online education among the best, most affordable in the nation

SPRINGFIELD, Mo., April 5, 201— Drury University’s online programs were recently recognized as some of the best and most affordable in the nation. In a study published by Best College Reviews, Drury was listed at No. 11 in a ranking of “The 25 Most Affordable Colleges Online for 2018.” 

Drury’s online programs cost $299 per credit hour for undergraduate degrees and $359 per credit hour for graduate degrees, not including fees. The university currently offers several master’s degrees, over a dozen bachelor’s degrees, and more than 10 associate’s degrees completely online. Popular online degree programs include business administration, emergency management, human services, paralegal studies and Master in Education programs.

In selecting colleges for the ranking, Best College Reviews considered each school’s affordability, availability of scholarships for online learners, range of online degrees and courses offered, quality of online learning environment, and accessibility for adult learners.

Just as in traditional seated classes, Drury’s instructors are known for their dedication and commitment to individual students in online classes. The ranking praised Drury’s instructors for being “attentive, knowledgeable, and tech-savvy with the online course interface.”

Recognizing the rising costs of higher education, Best College Reviews also recognized Drury for its ability to “place degree opportunities within reach of those students who would otherwise not be able to afford to pursue their education.”

This ranking is one of numerous such rankings to highlight the value of a Drury education. Earlier this year Drury was recognized as a best value school by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, and many of the university’s evening and online programs have been ranked individually for their quality, including its bachelor’s in human services and associate’s in paralegal studies.
