Clarkson College ranked fourth among the top 10 online Health Informatics Bachelor's degree programs in the U.S. by Health Informatics Degree Center. The ranking was published on the organization's website in September.
This ranking was created using the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database. For this ranking, only online degrees with Commission on Accreditation for Health Informatics and Information Management Education (CAHIIM) accreditation were considered. Each school was then assigned a score based on undergraduate graduation rates and tuition rates to determine the final top ten ranking.
