Regent Ranked Top 3 in Virginia’s Best Colleges in 2017

Regent University continues to stand as a leading institution for innovation in education — particularly in online learning.

It was recently ranked third in Top Colleges for 2017 in Virginia by Online Colleges.

The organization examined 2,500 other private and public colleges and universities.

The ranking system they used implemented data from the National Center for Education Statistics Integrated Postsecondary Education and ten categories of criteria.

For the criteria, they considered factors such as a school’s offerings of online programs, tuition costs and affordability, whether or not a school had a career placement program, retention rates, and various other relevant factors.

They listed out 68 of the schools on a 100-point scale — Regent received a 98.36.

Online Colleges isn’t the first organization to give Regent recognition for its commitment to excellence.

Last year, U.S. News & World Report listed Regent in the Top 20 Best Online Bachelor’s Program.

They also ranked Regent’s School of Business and Leadership as one of the top five graduate business programs in Virginia in 2017.

Earlier this year, Military Friendly, a branch of Victory Media, ranked Regent #1 in “Military Friendliness.”
