College Choice, a leading authority in college and university rankings and resources, has published its 2017 ranking for the 25 Best Online Colleges in Georgia.

Over the past four years, the state of Georgia has been named the best state for business four times in a row by Site Selection magazine. So students looking for a way to jumpstart their career would be well-placed to consider an online college in the state.

"By now, online education has shed most of its stigma, and in many ways, it has become the future of education," Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice, said of the ranking. "You can study and work at your own pace, you don't have to worry about lecture halls filling up, and you can save a tremendous amount of money."

College Choice developed the 2017 ranking for the 25 Best Online Colleges in Georgia using a few key factors, including annual tuition, financial aid, and post-degree career success. This information was researched using a variety of publicly available resources, including, individual school websites, and the National Center for Education Statistics.
