UF Achieves No. 1 Ranking for Online Bachelor’s Degree Programs

U.S. News & World Report also ranked the university’s online bachelor’s degree program as best in the country for veterans and active-duty service members


For the second year in a row, U.S. News & World Report has ranked University of Florida as the top institution in the country to offer an online bachelor’s degree, according to a University of Florida press release. The rankings organization also named UF as the country’s No. 1 university for veterans and active-duty service members to earn an online bachelor’s degree.


The top veterans ranking, achieved for the first time, recognizes student retention and graduation rates, faculty credentials and UF’s certification for participation in the GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon program. The ranking acknowledges UF’s tradition of support to U.S. military members, many of whom pursue their degrees from around the world.


“The recognition of the university’s online bachelor’s degree program is a tribute to the team that develops and delivers that program and the students who challenge the program to be the best,” said Andrew McCollough, UF associate provost and director of UF’s Office of Teaching and Technology. “Whether we are serving veterans, working parents, career professionals or traditional students, this evaluation suggests we are moving in the right direction.”


U.S. News also recognized several other outstanding online programs. UF’s bachelor’s in business administration ranked as the No. 1 online business bachelor’s program in the nation and the online bachelor’s degree program in psychology ranked No. 4.


Further, several of UF’s online master’s programs ranked among the top in the country, including education (No. 1), business administration (No. 4), engineering (No. 12) and UF’s non-MBA business programs (No. 31).
