Affordable Online Undergrad Degrees

Updated: Jul 3



Finding an affordable and flexible online undergraduate degree program can be a game-changer for those who are financially or geographically constrained. In recent years, online degrees have bridged the financial and geographical gap for those wanting to earn a degree. I've compiled a list of top schools offering budget-friendly online undergrad degree programs that cater to diverse needs and career aspirations. Most of these schools are not faith-based, but each has a reputation for providing quality education and ensuring their programs are accessible to everyone. Whether you're looking to advance in your current field or embark on a new career path, these schools offer the flexibility and affordability you need to achieve your educational goals without breaking the bank.


The schools in the list below:

  • Are fully accredited

  • Have a tuition rate of $500 per unit or less

  • Offer low tuition or in-state tuition rates for online students

  • Feature more than one online degree program

  • Vary in being on a quarter system or semester system


Please take time to check out the various degree programs at any school that might interest you. I have endeavored to list the most recent tuition rates, though it is still your responsibility to investigate all aspects of the schools and their programs.


If you want a bachelor's in ministry, theology, biblical studies, etc., check out my blog post on online undergraduate degrees in such fields.


The list will be updated as I learn about schools offering new programs.
