For the 2023 edition, U.S. News assessed more than 1,800 online degree programs. The rankings measure overall academic quality and are across varying disciplines. The rankings are based on data collected from the nation’s colleges and universities, which are then weighted by certain criteria, including engagement, expert opinion, faculty credentials and training, student excellence, and student services and technologies.
U.S. News noted that most undergraduate programs assessed in the “Best Online Programs” rankings are degree completion programs, meaning few, if any, new entrants at these schools are first-time, first-year students.
While these rankings only pertain to full-degree programs, RIT also offers a variety of online education opportunities designed around industry standards, employer demand, and the perspectives of our global network through RIT’s online programs.
