By OnlineU Staff | Updated July 21, 2020

The 122 online colleges on this list offer an open admissions policy for undergraduate admissions. Open admissions, also known as open enrollment, is a noncompetitive admissions policy where all students who meet the college's specified requirements are admitted. Most open admissions colleges only require that a student has a high school diploma or GED, though some also ask for other application materials or require an applicant to have an SAT score or high school GPA above a noncompetitive benchmark. Online open admissions colleges can be a great choice for students looking for an accessible education on their own schedule. We also offer a list of the 25 best online colleges and universities with open admissions.
