Newman University has received three awards for online programs from the SR Education group at

Newman received third in “Best Online College” category, fourth in the “Best Online Colleges Offering Bachelor's in Business” category and eighth in the “Most Affordable Master's in Theology Online” category.

A representative for the SR Education group said that the “Best Online College” category’s rankings are based on two factors: the potential for high salaries and the low tuition costs.

A SR Education representative said “the Most Affordable Master's in Theology Online” category was based off schools that are an affordable option for especially low- income students.

In a press release, the CEO of SR Education group, Sung Rhee, said that the purpose for this group is to be an online tool for students who are looking for educational opportunities.

“We are excited to offer the most comprehensive and diverse collection of online school and program rankings. Our resources give prospective students transparent and accessible information to help them make important decisions about investments in their education and future career paths.”
