ACU named among America’s Top Online Colleges by Newsweek

Abilene Christian University has been named one of America’s Top Online Colleges for 2022. The award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

“Since 2015, ACU Online has significantly grown our online degree offerings in a variety of disciplines to meet today’s learners where they are,” said Dr. Stephen Johnson, chief administrative officer for ACU Online. “ACU is ready and able to help students from across the nation obtain a degree that will give them the skills employers require, while also deepening their sense of how their work is connected to God’s desire for them and the world.”

The America’s Top Online Colleges ranking highlights the nation’s top 150 colleges based on an online survey with more than 12,000 assessments from more than 9,000 respondents who participated in online college degree programs and/or general online learning courses in the United States. Respondents rated the institutions regarding several criteria: organization and accessibility, support and service, cost of program, perceived organizational reputation, expected success and practical relevance of contents. Finally, respondents could indicate how satisfied they were with the organization and to what extent they would recommend it to others. 

Abilene Christian ranked #126 nationwide on Newsweek’s list. 

ACU’s online programs are housed at its branch location in Dallas and include 15 bachelor’s degrees, 15 master’s degrees, two doctorates and nine graduate certificate programs. Learn more about ACU Online’s degree programs at
