Successful Student serves as a leading online authority on college rankings and degree rankings, considered from a students’ point of view. We make sense of college for students in particular. As such, we provide rankings on an array of undergraduate and graduate degree programs.

Often, prospective students are unaware of all the colleges and universities offering their online degree, so we perform research to find the best schools offering their online degree program. Prospective students can explore our ranking lists to compare schools offering the same online degree. We also provide additional important information about each degree such as salary information, relevant jobs, and more.

We use our proprietary methodology to produce the rankings. We do not accept financial remuneration from colleges or universities to include them in a ranking list or move them up in a ranking list.

We help people make an informed decision about their college education.

“Without education, we are in a horrible and deadly danger of taking educated people seriously” ~ G. K. Chesterton. Learning is important, and so is being a well-rounded, experienced person.

All ranking articles are made with the student in mind, and are formulated for students, ranking schools and programs by issues that would be important to students. It’s a bottom-up approach to evaluating degrees, programs, and schools, all designed for students.
