Bemidji State University has recently been ranked of the top 30 best online bachelor’s in elementary education or early childhood education in 2017.

The ranking was created by consulting the NCES College Navigator database to find schools that offer an online bachelor’s in elementary education or early childhood education. We then reviewed rankings received from major publications like Forbes magazine, The Princeton Review, and U.S. News and World Report. We narrowed the pool to the most affordable schools based on tuition information from College Navigator. We listed the schools in order of affordability.

Bemidji State University was ranked 14th.

About the U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools awards

The U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon Schools awards began in 2012 following extensive collaboration with national non-profits and other federal agencies to honor schools for their sustainable facilities, health practices and effective environmental education. The award recognizes achievement in three broad categories of sustainable practices:

  1. Reducing environmental impact of facilities, grounds, and operations;
  1. Improving health and wellness by promoting a healthy physical environment and student and staff wellness practices; and
  1. Offering effective environmental and sustainability education, including civic learning, green careers and STEM connections.
