In many ways, Pennsylvania State University's "World Campus" is like the Holy Grail of affordable online colleges in Pennsylvania. This holy association doesn't stem from its religious roots, but rather from its unbeatable reputation in online education. PSU stands out as a paragon institution both quantitatively and qualitatively - not to mention, its online degree offerings to tuition ratio is easily the highest on this list. With dozens of academic (Letters, Arts, and Sciences), vocational (Health Policy and Administration), and oddball (Turfgrass Science) online bachelor's degree programs to choose from at just over $13,000 a year, there's a lot to love about PSU and little to lose.
In-State Tuition: $13,516/yr
