As a leading resource for campus and online learning, the site released its annual ranking for the 2018-2019 school year, honoring Hope International University multiple times for its excellence in online learning.

AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org named HIU one of the “Best Online Colleges in California 2018-2019.” Hope’s #26 ranking is higher than USC (#28) and USD (#30), and just below Pepperdine (#25), putting HIU in an elite class of 4-year California Colleges.

“We wanted to highlight schools like Hope International University who are providing exceptional online education experiences for their students,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “These schools continue to uphold rigorous accreditation standards and show an overall commitment to maximizing student success.”

To qualify, schools must be regionally or nationally accredited, hold a not-for-profit status in the United States, and offer at leastone online degree. Schools were then ranked based on their quality, affordability, flexibility,and degrees granted to their students.

HIU online offers a variety of 100% online university programs and online college courses. These online classes provide HIU's online college students with the same one-on-one attention expected in a traditional classroom setting. Hope International University online courses deliver students classroom access 24/7 -- serving each student's individual schedule for immediate & convenient access to state-of-the-art online university student resources.

Dozens of data points were used to calculate a weighted score for four ranking factors: quality, affordability, flexibility and program (in order of significance). To determine quality, which was the most important consideration for all ASO rankings, the most impactful data points were acceptance and graduation rates; for affordability, tuition and grants; for flexibility, part-time enrollment offerings; and for program, degrees conferred in that program area.
