SAC Receives Two Online Excellence Awards

San Antonio College has been named one of the nation's best colleges for online learning by AffordableCollegesOnline.org (ACO),  a leader in higher education information, resources and rankings. San Antonio College was recognized for two awards by ACO, which generated their rankings by analyzing cost and quality metrics of thousands of U.S. colleges with online degree programs. 

The awards were for:

Best Online RN Degree Programs - http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/degrees/nursing-programs/rn/#best-college-ranking
Best Online Associates Degree Programs - http://www.affordablecollegesonline.org/degrees/associates-programs/#best-college-ranking     

Only public, not-for-profit institutions were eligible for the ranking. The primary data points used to identify the Best Online Colleges of 2016 include the following:

  • Regional accreditation
  • In-state tuition and fees
  • Percent of full-time undergraduate students receiving institutional financial aid
  • Number of online programs offered
  • Student-to-teacher ratio

"We wanted to honor the colleges and universities setting the bar for online learning," said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of AffordableCollegesOnline.org "These schools are going above and beyond the industry standard to help make online education programs more affordable."

AffordableCollegesOnline.org has distinguished its ranking scale by using a Peer-Based Value metric, or PBV. A "bang for your buck" metrics, the PBV compares the cost of a program to the cost of other programs with the same (or a similar) qualitative score. It also compares the qualitative score of the program to the score of other programs with the same (or a similar cost).
