ATLANTA, GA & SAN FRANCISCO, CA– February 27, 2017– The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has ranked the best colleges with online programs for 2017 in the state of Georgia. 29 of the state’s four-year schools made the list, with University of Georgia, Mercer University, Brenau University, Reinhardt University and Shorter University coming in as the highest scoring schools. 19 two-year schools were also included, with Central Georgia Technical College, Atlanta Technical College, Athens Technical College, Albany Technical College and Wiregrass Georgia Technical College earning the highest marks.

“As more versatile options for education become available, more students enrolled in college programs in Georgia can earn certificates and degrees on their own schedule by choosing to study online,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of “The accredited schools on our list all offer high-quality online programs for students who want to earn a degree remotely.”

Colleges and universities on the Best Online Schools list must be an institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit and have at least one online certificate or degree program to qualify. Each college was also scored based on additional criteria that includes student/teacher ratios, post-graduation employment resources, graduation rate and financial aid availability.
