GetEducated.com ranks Capitol among the nation's best
July 15, 2008
The votes have been counted and the verdict is in. The national editorial review team at GetEducated.com, an independent, online degree clearinghouse, has designated Capitol College's master of science degree in electrical engineering a "Best Buy" for 2008.
"A 'Best Buy' designation indicates that the degree program has been reviewed and judged to offer a high quality distance degree to a national audience at tuition rates well below the national average," stated a company representative.
This newest award is based on a review of 216 regionally accredited, competing universities offering online degree and distance-learning options nationwide. Capitol's electrical engineering master's degree program is ranked 22nd on the site's Top 28 Ranked Best Buy Online/Distance Engineering Degrees.
A GetEducated.com press release reflecting on the rankings mentioned that while MIT and Stanford are top names in distance learning for engineers, they also rank as the top two most expensive distance learning institutions, charging a whopping $86,000 and $57,000 respectively for an MS in engineering. Just as all that glitters is not gold, not all that's "Ivy League" is a "Best Buy."
Comparatively, the news release identifies Capitol as the "only private college that made the Best Buy among online colleges ranking list." Coming in at only $16,200 for an online masters in electrical engineering, the distinction highlights Capitol College as the first of its kind to offer both affordability and excellence in online education.
