NGU Named to U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs Ranking
For working adults with some college credit, completing a four-year degree online may be the most practical way to obtain the knowledge and credentials needed to boost their careers. U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings are designed to help prospective students select schools that are right for them.
U.S. News ranked online bachelor's degrees as well as master's programs in business, education, nursing, engineering, computer information technology and criminal justice. A total of 1,545 online programs were evaluated.
North Greenville University was ranked 4th in the state and 159th in the nation for best online bachelor's program.
According to the report, the vast majority of students enrolled in these ranked programs have earned at least some college credit. Rather than first-time college students, they are more likely to be working professionals in their 20s to 40s looking to advance in or change their careers.
Consequently, the factors U.S. News selected to make comparisons between programs were not measures like high school class rank or standardized test scores. Instead, U.S. News chose factors that weigh how these programs are being delivered and their effectiveness at awarding affordable degrees in a reasonable amount of time.
U.S. News assessed schools based on four general categories: engagement, services and technology, faculty credentials and training, and expert opinion.
“Our mission at North Greenville University is to educate students to be transformational leaders for church and society. Many of those students are non-traditional, and that number will continue to grow in the coming years,” said University Provost and Dean of the University Faculty Dr. Nathan A. Finn. “We’re grateful that these latest rankings affirm that NGU Online is offering a Christ-centered, academically excellent, professional relevant education to students all over our nation.”
NGU offers undergraduate adult and online degree programs in business and leadership, Christian ministries, criminal justice, elementary educational studies, general studies, and psychology-applied.
