Utah has been named the fourth-best state in the country for online college students by OnlineColleges.com. OnlineColleges.com’s report, Best States for Online College Students, ranked each state based on a metric that consisted of several factors, including internet quality, in-state tuition rates, distance education programs, projected industry growth, state job growth and the median salary for bachelor’s degree holders.
Based on these factors, Texas ranked first, followed by Washington second and Georgia third.
The report credit’s Utah’s fourth-place ranking to a first place ranking in its internet value category and a higher-than-average projected job growth.
“The top states for distance learning reflect opportunities for both the prospective student, in terms of availability and cost, and the college graduate, in terms of employment opportunities,” said Johanna Sorrentino, senior site editor and co-author of the study. “Based on this data, residents in these states have a better chance of turning an online degree into a stable, well-paying career.”
