    I've come to think about these ranking systems simply as a decent starting place to look at programs. It's a list of programs, probably incomplete, that you can use as a tool for doing your own research into what will work best for you. It usually will consist of a range of programs/schools that vary in price and in delivery system. The "ranking" doesn't mean much to me and the methodology is often a bit murky, sometimes ill-conceived. In any case, here it is. Lots of familiar names. At least one small mistake . . . they list Harvard but as we know, you can't do the whole degree online at HES. You need to fact check this stuff.

    It seems that the "ranking" is in alphabetical order.

    Out of these, does anyone have any information on which would allow the greatest flexibility regarding transfer courses? I may end up having to go back and earn an MA in History, and I'm looking to utilize previous coursework if possible. I know APUS allows 15 transfer credits, but I believe the courses have to pretty much match the courses in the program. If there are other programs that allow a more general focus, that might be appealing.
