Rowan College at Burlington County has been recognized as the best two-year institution in New Jersey for online studies by AffordableCollegesOnline.org.

RCBC’s Distance Education Office currently offers more than 100 courses, 14 associate degrees and six certificates fully online.

“On average, 44 percent of students are taking at least one online class during the year,” said RCBC Dean of Learning Resources Dr. Martin Hoffman.

RCBC’s premier partner Rowan University was ranked the second best four-year college or university in New Jersey for online programming. RCBC partners with Rowan University’s Rowan Global program to offer RCBC graduates flexible degree completion programs, including ones that are fully online. These programs are ideal for students who may desire to enroll in a Rowan University program, but need the convenience of online, Saturday, or off-campus course work.

To be considered for this recognition, two-year colleges must have at least three online certificates or associate degrees; annual in-state tuition under $5,000; and an accredited not-for-profit institution.

The rankings are based on a number of performance metrics, including the following: average in-state net price for first-time/full-time undergraduates, number of online programs, student-teacher ratio, average amount of financial aid students receive directly from the college, availability of academic/career counseling services, availability of job placement services for students and graduates, and more.
