In only its fourth year of operation and third year of rankings eligibility, the University of Arizona has established itself as a leader in online education, vaulting into the top 10 percent of all online bachelor's programs in the U.S.
Arizona Online is tied at No. 29 out of 348 programs in the 2019 Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings by U.S. News & World Report. This represents a 27-spot jump from last year's rankings and a 52-spot increase from the UA's inaugural appearance in 2017.
"When the UA launched Arizona Online, we were committed to delivering the same amazing experience to every student. These rankings reflect that we have kept this commitment through the high-quality degree programs of Arizona Online," said UA President Robert C. Robbins.
Arizona Online earned its top placement in information technology graduate programs, which includes information systems, computer science, computer engineering and software engineering, placing fourth out of 51 programs -- up from No. 8 in 2018.
