    Washington DC has earned a reputation as one of the most expensive places in the country to live. As such, the University of the Potomac's ability to keep costs low is all the more impressive. Few residents would likely believe that such an affordable online school in Washington, DC even exists! Fortunately, this university does exist, and it offers convenient bachelor's degrees that feature the same "extensive education" that one would expect from a traditional, campus-based experience. For one thing, industry professionals and experienced professors lead all online courses. In addition, distance learners can choose from a similar degree selection as their campus-based counterparts, from Accounting to Cybersecurity to Hospitality and Tourism.

    Hands down, Gallaudet University stands as one of the most unique online colleges in Washington, DC. In fact, it is one of the most unique schools in the country, period!
