With nearly one in five of its higher education students enrolled exclusively in distance education courses, Colorado’s continues to grow in the area of online learning. From grass-roots efforts to state funding, the state’s higher learning programs both on-campus and online are receiving the support needed to flourish, which in turn means the state’s educational opportunities continue to grow for both in-state students and the thousands of distance students living elsewhere in the U.S.

Before we look at the best online colleges in CO, let’s start with the state of higher education and online education in particular in Colorado today.


A Brief Overview of Higher Education in Colorado

In 2013, the National Center for Education Statistics reported that Colorado had 93 degree-granting institutions, broken down as follows: 28 public schools, 13 nonprofits and 52 for-profits. The total number of bachelor’s degrees awarded in the ’12-’13 school year at these schools was: 23,436 at public schools, 4,083 at private nonprofits and 4,927 at private for-profits.

Tuition-wise, the College Board found that, in the ’15-’16 school year, the average in-state tuition and fees for four-year public schools was $9,750, while the out-of-state average was $27,850.

As for the state’s financial aid efforts, the National Association of State Student Grant & Aid Programs (NASSGAP) reported that Colorado awarded $79.166 million in need-based grants and $0.420 million in non-need grants for the ’13-’14 school year. Grants make up 11.7% of the state’s total fiscal support for higher education. The ‘13-‘14 school year saw a significant increase in state per-student spending, with a boost of 7.1%. This figure is higher than that of 35 other states, demonstrating that Colorado aims to make financial support of higher education a top priority.


The State of Online Higher Education in Colorado

The NCES estimates that at least 9.4% of students enrolled in Colorado’s Title IV institutions are in fully online programs. Of those, 74% were reported to be undergraduates and 40.6% were found to be living in Colorado, indicating the state does an excellent job of attracting out-of-state distance students.

This appeal is cultivated with state-wide initiatives that encourage online learning from a young age. The Colorado Cybershchools Association was formed to assist cyberschools in providing top-notch programs and to promote quality improvement in online programs at all age levels. A group of committed parents has come together to form the Colorado Coalition of Cyberschool Families, which advocates for online learning in Colorado. These groups and others continue to strengthen online higher education throughout the state.

As for higher education, the Colorado Distance Learning Association (ColoDLA) is undoubtedly the state’s most vocal and effective proponent of online learning, while also making a meaningful impact in K-12 learning. Part of the US Distance Learning Association since 2011, the ColoDLA brings together the state’s leading distance education teachers, administrators and IT personnel, either through regular meetings or an annual conference, to refine the technology and best practices that power distance education at the major institutions of higher learning throughout Colorado. No organization better captures the state’s proactive commitment to stellar online opportunities at every level of education.
