CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- Affordable Colleges Online (AC Online) recently ranked the University of Northern Iowa as the most affordable and high-quality provider of online education in Iowa. The online resource noted that UNI offers a wide variety of online undergraduate and graduate degree and certificate programs, is military-friendly and offers some programs entirely online.

"For-profit schools no longer dominate the distance-learning landscape," said Dan Schuessler, founder of AC Online. "So many of today's top universities have added full online degree programs to their catalogs, making it much easier for nontraditional students to receive a quality education."

Earlier this year, UNI's Continuing Education and Special Programs also earned the Iowa Distance Learning Association Innovators Award. The UNI team received the award for its innovative, integrative team approach to providing support services to faculty members who teach distance education courses.

AC Online provides students with information about affordable higher education options. For additional information, contact Kent Johnson, dean of Continuing Education & Special Programs, at 319-273-2122 or
