    Here are some that offer online education, but I don't know if they are top universities or not:

    DePaul University
    Maryland-College Park
    Indiana
    University of Alabama

    I'm sure there are a lot more...here is a website that may help you find them:

    I have a question about Maryland, you say Maryland -"College Park" offers online degrees, however when I enter their online degree page of their website it says Maryland-"University College". Do you know what the reason for the name change is?? Is it the same school? On the diploma would it say "College Park" or "University College"?

    Penn State with their World Campus provides a prestigious online degree, including a bachelor's degree.

    I just applied to Vanderbilt for a completely on line degree. I am not sure if they have undergrad degrees though.

    college park and university college are not the same, so I'm guessing that on the diploma it would say university college.

    There are many strong schools with online degree programs. I always recommend that students who are looking at online programs only look at those programs tied to universities with excellent off-line reputations. Some of the ones I tend to recommend include:

    Columbia University
    Cornell University
    University of Massachusetts at Amherst
    Univeristy of Maryland
    Carnegie Mellon
    Rensellaer Polytechnic
    Worcester Polytechnic

    Yep. I'm doing my Master's in Public Policy and Administration at Northwestern, but just applied at Penn State World Campus to work on my 2nd bachelor's in Criminal Justice during the quarters I won't be at NU. I think its through the Harrisburg Campus? Not sure of the major differences between campuses, but I have a friend who went to Penn State-University Park and said all degrees read the same thing-even the World Campus. I confirmed that on the website. Definitely not a bad gig, especially since I live in IL.

    I have a BA in Economics with a minor Criminal Justice. I kind of always wished I took the extra 6 classes to finish my 2nd degree in CrJ, but I was itching to get out of school.

    Since NU is so expensive...my work only pays for two classes a year. So, I'm going every other quarter. I figured I'd do this online degree program at Penn State World to keep me in the "school mode", plus work on a degree in the process. I'll be paying for PSU out of pocket...but its about 1/2 the price of a NU grad class.

    The top online Universities are the Universities which are old, established, and just so happen to have an online degree option for a couple of majors.

    I work in the field and agree with merlinjones. The best online programs are those affiliated with universities who have well-established reputations. Newly established schools with newly created online degree programs ... which have no on-campus students and no record of established academic integrity and reputation ... are a very poor risk.

    Since business was mentioned, the online BBA program at UMass Amherst is also a good choice. Their Isenberg School of Management is always highly ranked by Business Week.

    If you are willing to think internationally, the University of London has some nice programs.
