TOP 4 CHEAPEST DOCTORATES IN ACCOUNTING ONLINE 2020

By BVS Staff
July 2020

The 4 cheapest online doctorates in accounting in the country (based on data from the U.S. Department of Education’s College Navigator website), these schools’ tuition rates are all below the cost of a standard college education. We have sorted them in descending order of cost, with the least expensive school at #1, according to the hourly, online tuition rate. In cases where only the quarterly or semester rate was available, we have divided that rate by 6 (standard full-time graduate enrollment) and placed them accordingly on the list.
Unfortunately, only a limited number of doctorate in accounting degree programs are available online. Therefore it was not possible to compile a pool of options large enough to justify a multifactorial ranking system in which scoring of colleges and universities would be based on a list of specific considerations.

So instead, we ranked the programs solely according to their affordability. See below for the best cheap doctorates in accounting degrees online, ranked from least to most expensive, according to their per credit hour online rate, along with several useful facts about each program.
