U.S. News & World Report Names Embry-Riddle No. 1 for Online Bachelor's Programs and Online Bachelor's Programs for Veterans

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla., Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's online bachelor's programs ranked No. 1 in the nation, tied with the University of Florida, by U.S. News & World Report, based on metrics such as student engagement, faculty credentials and training, expert opinion and student services/technology. The university has ranked either No. 1 or No. 2 in this category every year since 2016.

Additionally, for the seventh consecutive year, U.S. News & World Report ranked Embry-Riddle's online bachelor's programs for military veterans the best in the United States, out of 101 colleges and universities analyzed. U.S. News & World Report also requires that institutions accept GI Bill tuition waivers and Yellow Ribbon funding in order to be considered in this ranking category.

"Embry-Riddle's top rankings for online bachelor's programs reflect our commitment to making quality education accessible around the world and at any point in a person's career," said Embry-Riddle President P.

It is a particular point of pride that Embry-Riddle has helped so many veterans make a transition to well-paid jobs that contribute to our economy and security."

Embry-Riddle's Worldwide Campus, which administers the university's virtual-learning programs in addition to offering in-classroom courses, ensures the academic success of its students by continually working to find new ways of engaging with distance learners and offering the resources they need to excel.

Leveraging cutting-edge technologies remains a key component to ensuring the university's mission of creating virtual environments that encourage student engagement. That initiative was recently strengthened with the launch of the campus's new Academic Innovation Division.

"Year over year, we push ourselves to discover new ways to deliver robust, industry-relevant coursework throughout all of our programs," said Dr. John R. Watret, Worldwide Campus chancellor. "We take a holistic approach to education, ensuring that all of our staff and faculty make the student experience a primary goal. We understand that our graduates make a significant impact on society on a global scale, and the care and preparation we provide when they are students is paramount to their success in the industry."
