Finding the Best Allied Health Professions Undergraduate Certificate School for You

In 2018-2019, 75,437 allied health professions students received their degrees and certificates, making the major the #4 most popular in the country.

With all the trade school programs available today, it can be tough to choose which one is the best for you. You're no longer limited to schools in your local area, either, since online programs are becoming more prevalent.

To assist you in seeing some of the education options that are available to you, Trade College Search has created its Best Value Allied Health Professions Undergraduate Certificate Schools ranking. This report analyzed 449 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value undergraduate certificate programs for allied health students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

This ranking is not just a list of inexpensive schools. We also consider each school's quality, since we believe a low-quality school may not be a 'bargain' at any price. More specifically, we discount our quality score by the published tuition and fees charged by a school. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The value is determined by how much quality your dollar buys.

For nationwide and regional rankings, we use out-of-state tuition and fees in our calculations. Average in-state tuition and fees are used for our statewide rankings.
