Columbia Southern University recently was ranked No. 2 among the most affordable military-friendly online schools for 2018.

The rankings, released by SR Education Group, list 25 college and universities that work to ensure their educational programs are available to military service members. Specifically, these institutions participate in the military Tuition Assistance program and have high military scores.

According to SR Education, these scores were determined using a number of factors, including the strength of military culture, prevalence of support services to online students, flexibility and military-specific financial aid.

Based in Orange Beach, Alabama, Columbia Southern University is an online university that offers online associate, bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees.

“This ranking serves as an acknowledgement of the sincere efforts Columbia Southern University has made over the years to make education affordable and accessible to active-duty men and women and veterans,” said Ernie Rosado, Ph.D., director of military outreach. “We are proud to say that nearly 40 percent of our student body is military.”
