CONCORD UNIVERSITY RANKS IN THE TOP FIVE OF BEST ONLINE COLLEGES IN WEST VIRGINIA

 
ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University is ranked in the top five of ZDNet.com’s “Best online colleges in West Virginia” for 2022.

Concord University offers an online bachelor’s in education and six online master’s degree programs. The master’s in social work was highlighted in the report because of its ability to be completed in a generalist or advanced standing track. CU’s master’s in athletic training was also mentioned due to the program’s accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education. 

In the stats highlighted, Concord University’s acceptance rate was higher than the other institutions in the top five—West Virginia University, Marshall University, University of Charleston, and Wheeling University round out the list.
