"Smart Choice - Best Online Colleges" by SuperScholar
Based in San Antonio, Texas, SuperScholar is an organization that provides online resources geared toward students searching for information about higher education and career options. The organization also ranks colleges and universities by various educational programs and majors.
According to SuperScholar, in order to be considered for its Smart Choice ranking of top schools offering online bachelor's degrees the institution had to be a regionally accredited college or university, be listed in the National Center for Education Statistics database, and offer online bachelor degree programs in multiple disciplines. Specialty schools focused on a narrow range of subjects were excluded. Schools that passed the initial screening process were then ranked by SuperScholar's editors based on each school's perceived market credibility and prestige, academic quality, support for students, and student satisfaction.
