CLEVELAND – While the online program at Truett McConnell University (TMU) has not yet met the ten-year mark, the university was recently ranked third in best online college programs in Georgia. The distinction was made by EDsmart with consideration of over 70 public colleges, universities, and technical colleges, and more than 45 private institutions.


To be considered for this ranking, schools must provide online courses and are ranked based on three categories: affordability (financial aid, net price), student satisfaction (retention rate), and student outcome (four-year graduation rate).

“We are grateful to receive statewide recognition as the #1 private university and the #3 school overall in online education in Georgia,” said TMU President Dr. Emir Caner. “We are thrilled that 66% of online students graduate, a feat that is very rare in the online community. That is in no small part due to our faculty and staff and how they serve our student body.”

According to EDsmart’s website, rankings are determined based on the extent to which colleges and universities provide the best opportunities and value for students seeking online training and educational programs. TMU Online offers both bachelor’s and master’s degrees taught from a Christian worldview. Completing a TMU Online degree equips you for your chosen career with the confidence of a fully accredited education and the certitude of strong biblical convictions.

“TMU Online offers the benefits of flexibility combined with small class sizes,” said Amy Hayes, TMU’s Director of Online Learning. “Because assignments are usually due at the end of each week, students with families and/or full-time jobs can schedule their work around times that work best for them. Small class sizes mean that online students can easily build connections with both their professors and the other students in their programs, which can help them feel less isolated and more supported in their learning.”

“With more than 100 choices available for the student,” said Caner, “we are thrilled so many are choosing TMU Online for their undergraduate and graduate education.”
