Finding the Best Allied Health & Medical Assisting Services Undergraduate Certificate School for You

With 77,593 degrees and certificates handed out in 2019-2020, allied health and medical assisting services is the #2 most popular major in the United States.

Today's trade school students have lots of options to pick from when considering higher education opportunities. As online education oppotunities continue to grow, you're not restricted to just schools in your local area anymore. Even some of the 'big name' schools are offering online courses.

Along with in-depth profiles of schools and the programs they offer, Trade College Search has created the Best Value Allied Health Services Undergraduate Certificate Schools to help you in your search for the best school for you. This report analyzed 828 schools in the United States to see which ones offered the best value undergraduate certificate programs for medical assisting students. The goal was to highlight schools with more affordable prices than others offering similar quality experiences.

When determining this ranking, we place a high emphasis on the school's quality as well as its sticker price. Even though a college may be affordable, it may not offer value. Specifically, our score for quality is discounted by the published tuition and fees charged by the given college. This gives the cost per unit of quality for each college. The more quality your dollar buys, the better the value.

Our calculations use out-of-state tuition and fees in our nationwide and regional rankings. For statewide rankings, we use average in-state tuition and fees.
