Although it probably goes without saying, it's not easy to secure the top spot in this Minnesota best online colleges ranking. And solely in terms of online educational quality, it's almost a tossup between the University of Minnesota's campuses at Crookston and Twin Cities. However, in terms of both price and variety, UM Crookston wins by a nose. In-state students can save over $2,000 a year in tuition alone by choosing Crookston over Twin Cities. And in doing so, they'll buy themselves access to an extended range of degree options, including Entrepreneurship, Sports and Recreation Management, and International Business.
