There are two reasons that the Clarion University of Pennsylvania deserves to be at the top of our online real estate programs ranking. Of course, it officially ranks first because of its low average tuition costs. But aside from its affordability, Clarion's program also attracts attention as having perhaps the most comprehensive real estate curriculum available online. More specifically, the core coursework includes at least nine specifically real estate-oriented classes, covering everything from real estate law, finance, and analysis to marketing, brokerage, appraisal, and management. On top of that, you'll even take classes that will help qualify you for a real estate appraisal and/or brokerage license in the state of Pennsylvania.

Next on our list of cheap online degrees is our ranking of the most affordable online real estate degree programs.
Real estate is a dynamic field that combines business and finance with sales and economics in a way that has the potential to be quite lucrative. Students who graduate with a degree in real estate pursue careers as real estate brokers, appraisers, mortgage lenders, property managers, and assessors, just to name a few. Many people choose to attend classes on campus, but the demand for online classes has caused the availability of distance education programs to grow.
The 5 Best Online Real Estate Degrees Ranking Methodology
For this ranking, we focused on public and private (non-profit) colleges and universities that offer real state programs online. Because the focus of this list is on affordability, we only considered programs with average* tuition rates of $25,000/year or less.
*For public schools, we calculated the average value of their in-state and out-of-state rates.
Unfortunately, there are a limited number of real estate degree programs available online. Therefore, we could not compile a pool of options large enough to justify a multifactorial ranking system in which we’d score colleges and universities based on a list of specific considerations.
So instead, we ranked the programs solely according to their affordability. See below for the best cheap real estate degrees online, ranked from most to least expensive.
