OnlineU in the News

As a driver of the college affordability and value conversation, OnlineU (previously Guide to Online Schools) has been featured in many national and local media outlets. Since releasing our first online college rankings in 2009, OnlineU has also been recognized by over 475 colleges as a leader in the online higher education space.

OnlineU was formerly known as Guide to Online Schools until August of 2020, when the website rebranded. All mentions from July 2020 and before will refer to Guide to Online Schools.

OnlineU ranks thousands of colleges annually across degree levels, subject areas, and locations. Our rankings recognize colleges that are going above and beyond to create online programs that deliver the best value for students. We are always happy to hear from schools that are proud to be included on our ranking lists. We hope our rankings serve as encouragement for colleges to continue improving their online programs.
