MONROE, La (ULM) - The University of Louisiana Monroe is continually striving to make education more affordable while raising the standard of academic excellence, and those efforts are not going unnoticed.
ULM was recently recognized by AffordableSchools.net, a leading higher education resource, for having the most affordable online bachelor’s degree in marketing.
The site ranking is determined by a variety of factors, including price of in-state and out-of-state tuition, as well as net price. ULM ranked number one out of twenty affordable universities. Other schools that made the list include Missouri Southern State University (#2), Troy University (#6), Indiana State University (#11), and the University of Memphis (#15).
As part of their methodology, AffordableSchools.net collected various data for colleges offering a bachelor’s degree in marketing from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). A comparison of the latest recorded in-state and out-of-state tuitions showed that ULM was found to be the most affordable with the lowest net price.
ULM is known for its low cost and high quality education. However, being recognized on a national level for its affordability enforces the growth that ULM continues to experience.
The online marketing degree is accessible to students who are not able to attend classes and facilitates an opportunity for their education. ULM has established a reputation that sets eULM apart from other online degree programs.
"ULM is committed to providing adult learners the opportunity to earn their education at an affordable cost,” said Paula Thornhill, director of eULM. “In today’s economic climate, affordable education is a necessity and we are making sure that we do our part in making that happen.”
The program has reached a peak in affordability and has helped make education a possibility for nontraditional prospective students.
