25. Eureka College
Average Net Price: $19,754
Retention Rate: 71%
Graduation Rate: 44%
"Located in Eureka, Illinois, Eureka is a private, Christian college that has less than 6oo students. They admit 62 percent of their applicants. U.S. News ranked them 33rd in the Midwest region. They emphasize a liberal arts education, even in their professional program offerings. Niche.com ranks them as a B-. They are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
Although they do not offer online degrees, Eureka College has a unique means of helping struggling on-campus students. Students can take approved courses online at other institutions in order to make up failed classes. Eureka pays for the tuition differential that a more expensive course might cost at another institution. The idea has caught on, and now Eureka students who would like to accelerate their programs or add more credits in minors or other concentrations are also taking coursework at other online institutions that Eureka has pre-approved."
