Chico State has been ranked No. 1 in California for online education by Edudemic, a popular technology and education website, according to a news release.

The Seattle-based website rated 740 California colleges based on graduation and retention rates, cost, financial aid availability and how the online programs are used.

“The best online university in California is California State University, Chico,” the Edudemic rankings states. “Their strong academic performance indicators, along with thoughtful responses to our questions about online education, landed them in the top spot.”

Chico State’s cost for online schooling is $233.40 per credit hour for in-state residents and is one of the most affordable schools in California.

Chico State’s online programs include Bachelor of Arts degrees in social science, liberal studies and sociology and Master of Science degrees in nursing and agricultural education.

Chico State faculty, academic advisors and support professionals are dedicated to students, said Debra Barger, dean of Regional and Continuing Education.

“We admit motivated students and challenge them with the same academic rigor as our on-campus degree programs,” she said. “Our online students should be commended for their academic achievements reflected in high graduation rates.”
