US News & World Report Ranks Embry-Riddle Worldwide One of Nation's Best Online Educators

That's according to U.S. News & World Report's 2018 list of Best Online Bachelor's Programs published Tuesday.

Two Virginia Tech online graduate education programs are among the top in the country.

The School of Nursing's online bachelor's degree program (RN-BS), which admitted its first class in 2012-13, was ranked No. 60 in the Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings. "Our focus is on online courses that promote high levels of student interaction and developing programs that expand access to the University's excellent offerings".

The 2018 Best Online Programs methodologies are based on a variety of factors, including student engagement, graduation rates, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation and student academic and support services. Prospective students can use the searchable directory to explore factors such as tuition, program offerings and online services offered to enrolled students.

Most undergraduate programs assessed by U.S. News are degree completion programs, and so few, if any, new students are first-time, first-year students. Western's General Studies program is one of seven bachelor's degree programs in the USA endorsed by the National Fire Academy (NFA).
