Western Carolina University’s online bachelor’s degree programs have been listed among the nation’s best options for veterans in a set of rankings released recently by U.S. News & World Report.
The magazine ranked WCU at No. 12 on a list of 69 schools offering the “Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans.” Now in their second year, the rankings are designed to help veterans identify high-quality online degree programs that suit their educational needs.
“Veterans and active-duty service members face unique challenges as students, from transitioning between bases and grappling with deployment to balancing work and family life upon return,” said Robert Morse, director of data research for U.S. News. The ranked programs “are high-quality programs that also offer educational benefits and flexibility for veterans pursuing a degree,” he said.
