It’s 2018 and the term “online college” has changed. Back before traditional brick-and-mortar colleges and universities added distance learning courses and degree programs to their higher-education offering, it was understood that if a college was an online college, it literally meant that the college was only accessible online.

To make education more accessible and as technology has advanced to allow that, a growing number of traditional colleges have taken their degrees and courses online. This transition has changed the term “online college” to include any college or university that offers online courses or degree programs.

Terminology transition aside, there are still those colleges and universities that do not have campus locations and that are only accessible online. According to the Department of Education, Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) database, there are 56 100% online colleges and universities in the U.S. These 56 true online colleges are listed below in alphabetical order.
