The University of Louisiana at Lafayette has earned high marks in the 2017 U.S. News & World Report Best Online Programs rankings.

UL Lafayette is among the top 75 universities offering online bachelor programs, according to U.S. News & World Report rankings that were released Tuesday.

The University’s online bachelor’s program earned a numerical ranking of No. 68. It was the highest-ranked program in the state.

UL Lafayette offers three online undergraduate programs in health care: an RN to BSN program; a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology, with a health promotion and wellness concentration; and a bachelor’s degree in health services administration.

“The rankings represent a University-wide commitment to deliver a high-quality, engaging experience for students enrolled in our online programs,” said Luke Dowden, director of the Office of Distance Learning.   

More than 1,300 graduate and undergraduate schools were assessed in four general categories that included student engagement, faculty credentials and training, peer reputation, as well as student services and technology using university-reported data for the 2015-2016 academic year.

The University was also recognized for its online graduate education program. Its Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction was ranked No. 158.

UL Lafayette offers 11 online undergraduate, graduate and graduate certificate programs. Out-of-state online students are charged in-state tuition unless they're enrolled in a special program, such as RN to BSN.
