View unfiltered list

Colleges listed here allow students from out of state to participate in college classes via distance learning. We do not have an advertising or financial relationships with these colleges. All colleges listed here are REGIONALLY ACCREDITED- the gold standard.


Information is accurate as of 01/01/2022, but please reach out to each college directly for the latest course lists, eligibility, deadlines, prices, etc. *Added to the list in 2022.

Price per course = Entire course for 1 price. Price is fixed per class and number of college credits are not factored in. For example, a 2 credit course costs the same as a 4 credit course.

Price per credit = Typical college courses are usually more than 1 credit. To find the price, multiply the cost per credit times the actual number of credits of your course. For example, a college that charges $100 per credit will charge $300 for a 3 credit class.

EVERY college on this list is Regionally Accredited (the gold standard)
