SR Education Group, the creator of OnlineU.org, implemented a methodology to compile the 2014 Most Affordable U.S. Online College Rankings. To be considered for inclusion in the rankings, online colleges were required to currently be accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and offer fully online programs, so that students located anywhere in the country may pursue their degrees. All rankings were then compiled based on annual tuition for an online bachelor's degree for 24 specific subject areas.
