The University of North Florida has been named a 2018 Top Online College and a 2018 Most Affordable Online College by SR Education Group, an education research publisher.
In the Top Online Colleges list, UNF ranked No. 2 in the country for bachelor’s degrees in nursing, which also made the Most Affordable ranking. Additionally, the University was listed as a Top Online College for master’s degrees in nutrition. The School of Nursing as well as Nutrition and Dietetics are both flagship programs in the Brooks College of Health.
“The fact that we’re being nationally recognized for our online programs is a testament to the exceptional education offered at our institution,” said UNF President John Delaney.
UNF has received several other national designations, including 2018 “Best in the Southeast” by Princeton Review, 2018 “Best Regional” University by U.S. News & World Report, 2018 “Best Colleges” by College Factual and the 2017 Higher Education Excellence in Diversity Award from Insight into Diversity magazine, to name a few.
The Top Online Colleges methodology employs manually researched, degree-specific tuition rates along with data from the National Center for Education Statistics. For schools that met the criteria, academic strength factors and annual tuition rates were entered into a proprietary algorithm to determine value score and rank order. The result is a ranking that highlights schools with records of academic success and commitment to affordability.
