Lees-McRae lands a spot in three Affordable Colleges Online rankings

College information and ranking resource, Affordable Colleges Online (ACO), awarded Lees-McRae a top spot on three separate lists for 2018.

The college received a spot as Best Online College in North Carolina, Best Online Accelerated Nursing Degree in the U.S. and Best Online Registered Nurse Degree in the U.S.

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

Affordable Colleges Online took into account the college’s regional accreditation, in-state tuition and fees, percent of full-time undergraduate students receiving institutional financial aid, number of online programs offered and the student-to-teacher ratio, while developing the ranking.

Established in 2011, ACO offers “free community resource materials and tools that span topics such as financial aid and college savings, opportunities for veterans and people with disabilities and online learning resources,” according to an ACO release.
