(HOWELL, MI) The college rankings for 2022 are out, and Cleary University has made many lists for providing the best education!

University HQ named Cleary #5 in the entire United States for best online Bachelor degree in Business Management. University HQ considers many factors when determining its best colleges each year, including accreditation, admissions, retention rates, tuition costs, degrees offered and graduate rates.

“As Cleary is a private, as opposed to public, school, students might expect higher costs,” University HQ officials say. “However, the tuition at Cleary is just under $22,000 a year, and that is before the financial aid office steps in to help lower those costs. One hundred percent of students at Cleary receive some form of aid, and tuition is lower than the usual tuition cost for students at all income levels,” University HQ reports. “Students who are ready to be engaged in their education at Cleary have all of the resources they need to be successful.”

To establish its rankings, University HQ uses these reputable sources: US Bureau of Labor Statistics, PayScale, College Navigator, College Scorecard and College Affordability Center.

University HQ’s goal is to provide unbiased and comprehensive academic information for college-bound students to learn about career paths, university requirements, scholarship opportunities and new programs schools offer. Students using the University HQ website can learn about the top schools in their state and the country, what jobs are available in with their degree or certification, school costs, transfer processes for each school and how they are ranked compared to other schools in the state and country.

University HQ also ranked Cleary as one of the best bachelor’s degree colleges in Michigan (#13) and one of the best master’s degree programs in Michigan (#12).
