Although it is very convenient to be able to ‘attend’ school remotely and has made education more accessible to many people, some still face a major barrier – being able to pay for their education. There are some generous government financial aid programs, but most of this aid is in the form of loans. Becoming burdened with student loan debt is not a desirable situation for most people. Recognizing this issue, some of the most respected and well-known universities and colleges have made available programs for qualified students that pay for their tuition, without loans. Listed below are the top highest ranked such schools that also offer online classes and degrees.
