St. Cloud State has been recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation for online education & teaching degree programs. Just under 6 percent of postsecondary institutions received this honor in 2022.
RENO, Nev. (PRWEB) May 17, 2022 - Saint Cloud State University has been ranked one of the year’s best schools for online degrees in education & teaching by STEPS (Student Training & Education in Public Service). Just under 6 percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. earned a ranking position.
See where St. Cloud State ranked on the full list below:
“STEPS wanted to find the colleges with the best overall education & teaching programs available online. This included degree programs with top-notch academics, support services for students and affordability of enrollment,” said Kyle Smith, community outreach specialist at STEPS. “Identifying and acknowledging these schools is critical as more students look toward online higher education options in a post-pandemic era.”
This ranking comes at a time when enrollment in online degree programs is on the rise. A recent study from market research company, Technavio, found that online higher education has the potential to grow by 20 percent over the next four years.
“St. Cloud State is one of the few colleges today prioritizing online learning to meet student demand,” said Smith. "Adding online programs also promotes diversity in higher education, opening doors to those who may not have easy access to a campus-based classroom.”
STEPS analyzed multiple datasets from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), as well as data collected from the schools themselves. Key data points used to identify top schools include the following:
STEPS vetted an estimated 7,700 postsecondary institutions to create its rankings. To qualify, a college or university must hold active regional accreditation from an agency approved by the U.S. Department of Education, and have at least one partially online program in education & teaching.
STEPS started in 2019 with the goal of connecting students with valuable and informative resources to help them get their degrees and find satisfying careers in public service. These free guides range from connecting students with online schools to breaking down options for affording a degree.
The St. Cloud State College of Education and Learning Design Twins game will be held around April 2023. A date will be shared once the event is set.
This event is open to our College of Education and Learning Design students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. Feel free to invite family and guests. It is always a fun time. Please spread the word.
