UA Shoots to Upper Tier of Online Universities

In its first year of eligibility, the University of Arizona has landed in the top quarter of all online bachelor's programs. The 2017 Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings by U.S. News & World Report placed UA Online at No. 81 out of 312 programs


"To reach this echelon in our first year is a great achievement for the University," said Vincent Del Casino, Vice President, Academic Initatives & Student Success. "We've had a long history of success in our on-campus undergraduate educational programs and have fully translated that to the online experience.” 

At the core of this rapid ascent is UA Online's unique educational model. Unlike other universities around the country that rely on third-party outsourcing, the UA built its online platform from the ground up, entirely in-house. This crucial differentiator gives the UA a level of quality control that allows it to deliver the same faculty, courses and degrees as those on campus.
