Ohio State Receives Top Rank for Online Undergraduate Degree Offerings

The Ohio State University’s online bachelor’s programs are America’s best, according to the 2018 rankings released today by U.S. News & World Report. In addition, the university’s online graduate nursing program is ranked No. 2.

The rankings include public and private colleges and universities with degree-granting programs offering online classes needed to complete the degree. Categories include bachelor’s programs and graduate programs in business, information technology, criminal justice, education, engineering and nursing.
