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

Allied Health & Medical Assisting Services is one of the most popular majors in the nation, ranking 2nd of all the majors we analyze. In 2018-2019, 99,166 degrees and certificates were awarded to students with this major.

It's not easy to decide which trade school program to enroll in when you have so many options available. 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.

To help you arm yourself with the information you need to make your decision, Trade College Search has developed this Best Value Allied Health & Medical Assisting Services Undergraduate Certificate Schools ranking. Our analysis looked at 732 schools in the United States to see which undergraduate certificate programs offered the best value experiences for medical assisting students with the aim of identifying those quality schools that are more affordable than some of their counterparts.

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. 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.

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