Top 20 Online Christian Colleges

Online education is a popular alternative to brick and mortar schools because of the flexibility offered. In the past, students seeking a higher education had to go to a physical location for all their classes, sometimes losing out on opportunities to continue working while furthering their education.

In the Christian sphere, schools like Liberty University and Abilene Christian University can offer students the opportunity to attend an online Christian college. Students can go to class on their schedule, working around jobs, children, and other scheduling conflicts. They can also pick a school across the country, or even across the world, and attend it from the comfort of their home.

Since online education got its start, Christian schools are turning to the program to offer bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees for students.

If you have no interest in traditional campus life, or if you want to complete your degree on your own time, an accredited Christian college can still be an option.

All of the Christian colleges on this list provide bachelor’s degree programs and are Christ-centered in their pursuits to offer an online education. In doing this, online Christian colleges offer a unique approach to higher learning. Students will learn important biblical principles that they can take home, to their next job, and to their communities.

The colleges in this list hold high a good Christian character while cultivating academic prestige and a high quality online program. A good Christian college should have full accreditation, a low student-to-teacher ratio, confessional status, and around-the-clock support if the student runs into any issues. Based on those criteria, here are the top 20 online Christian colleges.
