FSU Recognized for Online Program Excellence in Maryland

Affordable Colleges Online has designated Frostburg State University as one of the “Best Online Colleges” in Maryland for 2016-2017. FSU’s position on the list marks it as one of the top four Maryland colleges active in online education.

The ranking highlights institutions in the state that combine affordability, quality and flexibility in their online degrees. Universities with three or more online programs were scored on criteria including the number of programs offered, graduation rates, cost of attendance, financial aid availability and student-teacher ratio.

One of the metrics used by Affordable Colleges Online is Peer-Based Value, or cost compared to other programs of a similar quality. This recognition is one of several in recent years that notes the outstanding value of FSU programs. They also looked at criteria like accreditation, number of online programs and other student-experience metrics.

Frostburg also appears on the list of “Best Online Colleges” in Maryland for 2015-2016.

Affordable Colleges Online provides resources geared toward making college more affordable, spreading awareness of the importance of accreditation and connecting students with quality institutions. For more information on Affordable Colleges Online and FSU’s distinction, visit
