The University of North Florida has been named a 2018 Top and Most Affordable Military-Friendly Online College by SR Education Group, a leading education research publisher.
SR Education Group evaluated more than 500 accredited colleges across the country offering online degrees using factors important to military students, with only 60 colleges making the 2018 Top Military-Friendly Online Colleges list. UNF was also highlighted as a Top 25 military-friendly college committed to affordability, ranking No. 6 in the country on the 2018 Most Affordable Military-Friendly Online College list.
“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. “Faculty in our online programs are committed to this form of program delivery and have developed course materials and teaching methods that are second to none.”
Colleges were required to offer at least 10 fully online degrees to be considered for the Military-Friendly Online College rankings. All accredited schools that met this requirement were evaluated based on four key factors for military support in online education: military culture, online support, financial aid and flexibility. SR Education Group used government data from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs GI Bill Comparison Tool to evaluate schools in these four categories and manually researched annual tuition rates of online programs offered by all schools on the military-friendly list.
This latest recognition comes on the heels of UNF receiving several other national designations, including U.S. News & World Report’s 2018 “Best Online” Bachelor’s Program, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s “Best College Value of 2018,” 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.
SR Education Group’s mission is to create authoritative online resources for students seeking an online education program that best suits their budget and career aspirations. SR Education Group is passionate about making quality education attainable for everyone and believes that objective information about education, careers, and educational financing should be free and easily accessible.
UNF , a nationally ranked university located on an environmentally beautiful campus, offers students who are dedicated to enriching the lives of others the opportunity to build their own futures through a well-rounded education.
