Thursday, October 11, 2018

BestColleges.com has named Bryan College as the best online college in their Best Colleges in Tennessee 2018 rankings. Bryan finished ahead of the 15 accredited online schools ranked and countless other online schools in the state that did not make the list. Bryan College was also named fourth Best College in Tennessee behind Vanderbilt, Rhodes College, and Baptist Memorial College of Health Sciences.

BestColleges.com’s rankings are based on academic quality, affordability, and online competency. Their rankings reflect the most recent data available from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System and College Navigator, both of which are hosted by the National Center for Education Statistics.

“We are very thankful for this recognition,” said Dr. Stephen Livesay, president of Bryan College. “To be able to provide students with a variety of faith-based services and programs, as well as student groups and sports, in order to create a sense of community on campus is the greatest blessing.”

“These rankings are a great honor for Bryan,” said Dr. Douglas Mann, vice president of Academics at Bryan College. “They recognize the hard work our faculty and staff have put into creating academically challenging and high quality programs for students.”

Bryan earned the number one online college ranking because of the opportunities for discounted or free tuition, making it one of the most affordable online colleges in Tennessee. Both online and on-campus students who complete their bachelor’s degrees at Bryan can earn their master’s degrees at the college for free.

“Additionally, online undergraduates pay a discounted per-credit tuition rate compared to their on-campus peers. Bryan also offers several free student services and resources, including academic tutoring and counseling,” BestColleges.com wrote.

Through Bryan’s adult degree-completion programs, students can earn online bachelor’s degrees in business administration, psychology, or criminal justice. Coursework for these programs is offered fully online through accelerated, six-week sessions.

Online students can also earn credit based on life experiences.

Bryan College provides undergraduate students with 25 majors to choose from, including biology, Christian ministry, music, and several pre-professional programs, earning the school its fourth place ranking.

Like other respected colleges in Tennessee, Bryan is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges

Bryan College scored a 67.14 for the first place online college ranking and a 66.19 for the fourth place college ranking.
