EDsmart Names Oakwood University as One of 2019's Best Online and On-Campus Colleges in Alabama (193 hits)

EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has released the 2019 edition of the Best Online and On-Campus Colleges in Alabama. Oakwood University is listed among the top 10 institutions.

EDsmart's ranking is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date, and includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based primarily on affordability, while also considering factors such as graduation and retention rates according to NCES College Navigator reporting.

"It is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond," said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart. "Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education."

"The Best Colleges in Alabama rankings allow students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals," said EDsmart's spokesperson. "Beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates."

Schools are ranked based on four data points in three categories:

• Affordability (financial aid, net price)
• Student Satisfaction (retention rate)
• Student Outcome (4-year graduation rate)

Each data point is ranked with equal weight. Schools received an overall score by aggregating each individual point and ranking accordingly–100 being the highest score possible, and 1 being the highest possible rank. All data was gathered from the National Center for Education Statistics website.

EDsmart reviews publicly available data to produce independent ranking assessments of various educational programs, in addition to student guides and resources. The site is regularly updated by a committed team of writers and researchers, who produce college rankings and resources that will help prospective and current college students get into, pay for, and thrive at the college of their choice.
