Best Online Christian Colleges and Universities

Its exciting to have the opportunity to look for Christian education whether online or offline.  I’m creating this guide for the purposes of looking toward online universities that have bricks and mortar campuses.  Why is that?  The for profit universities (which is another word for the online universities, which generally don’t have bricks and mortar campuses) are known for focusing on sales and marketing of their product and investing far less in the services they provide to students.

I have no real alignment to any particular university.  Again, I’m just wanting to make sure that people go with a university that has a bricks and mortar campus and that are credible.  I’m doing this as a free service to you the Christian consumer and reader.

With that in mind I’m going to suggest the following Christian universities:

1) Azuza Pacific University

2) Biola University

3) Ablilene Christian University

4) Pepperdine University

5) Liberty University

6) Regent University

7) George Fox University

8) California Baptist University

9) University of St. Francis

10) Concordia University (Wisconsin)

11) Indiana Wesleyan University

12) Bethel University

An even more extensive list could be compiled by looking at the Forbes Ranking of Christian Universities or US News and World Report Rankings of Christian Universities and cross referencing those by finding out which ones have online programs.  This may take a bit of time, but is well worth the time investment and monetary investment you are putting into your Christian college or university choice.

I have tended to put universities I trust near the top of the list and others near the bottom.  However, this list isn’t a true rankings in the traditional sense, but again intended to provide you a list to start from as well as to get you to focus on Christian universities with bricks and mortar campuses and established reputations as educational institutions rather than online only universities that may have more dubious motives in terms of your long-term education.

God Bless as you search for the best Christian university for you and your family.

If you have any suggestions, commentary, or questions feel free to leave a comment.  I’ll do my best to get back to them as I become aware of them.

* A note regarding two links to Christian university rankings I provide.  The two highlighted links send you to re-compolations of secular which focus only on the Christian university rankings.  This is one of the most credible websites on the topic–they provide you with meat and potatoes of the rankings in terms of Christian rankings (they really help you separate the wheat from the chaff if you will).  I believe it was compiled by the marketing department at George Fox university in an effort presumably to help Christian families select a quality bricks and mortar institution that have higher reputations–rather than alternatives–given that this can be a challenging task.
