Pride Bite: NSU Ranked as One of the Nation’s Best Online Education Programs

TopColleges_badge_2018

Choosing the right school is one of the biggest decisions we can make in life. When students choose Nova Southeastern University (NSU,) they are choosing to get an edge on the competition.

As evidence of this edge, NSU has been ranked third in Florida and 12th overall in the United States when it comes to online educational opportunities. In fact, NSU is one of only four institutions of higher learning from Florida to crack the ranking’s Top 15. If you break down the rankings, NSU is:

•8th in the nation for overall opportunities for service members (i.e. military personnel);
•10th in the nation for doctoral degrees;
•11th in the nation for bachelor’s and master’s degrees and credit for military training.

“You could say that NSU’s DNA is rooted in online education,” said Dr. George Hanbury, NSU’s President and CEO. “We pioneered what was then called distance learning, and we continue to strive to provide as many educational options as possible for our students. These latest rankings are further proof that NSU provides its students with a competitive edge that other colleges and universities don’t, and we’ll continue to look for ways to be better tomorrow than we are today.”

Dr. Hanbury added that the NSU Edge is the fact the same exceptional education offered online is taught by the very same professors who are at the front of the classrooms teaching students face-to-face. The education isn’t different, just the delivery method in order to provide a high-quality education to as many students as possible.

The rankings, from Online Colleges, used the most recent data available from the National Center for Education Statistics’ Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS), and ranked more than 2,500 accredited colleges and universities on a variety of factors, including affordability, student services and the availability of online programs.
