Updated 10:18 AM CST, Thu, December 19,2019, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and independent rankings, has released the 2020 edition of the Best Online Colleges in Missouri to help prospective students and their families research the top online education institutions in Missouri.

Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/19/2019 -- EDsmart's ranking of the best online colleges in Missouri is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based on affordability, academic quality, student satisfaction and post-graduation salaries according to data from the U.S. Department of Education.

"As online college courses become more prevalent, it is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond," said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart. "Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education."

"The Best Online Colleges in Missouri ranking allows students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals," said EDsmart's spokesperson. "Beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates."

The EDsmart 2020 Best Online Colleges in Missouri ranking names Missouri State University—Springfield #1 as the best online college in Missouri with Northwest Missouri State University and Webster University following.
