US News Ranks New England Tech for Best Online Degree Programs

New England Institute of Technology Best Bachelor's Degree award from U.S. NewsNew England Institute of Technology Ranks Top-10 in U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 Rankings of Best Online Bachelor’s Programs

In the 2017 U.S. News & World Report rankings of  “Best Online Bachelor’s Programs” released this week, New England Institute of Technology (NEIT) was ranked eighth nationally for the quality and value of its online bachelor’s degree programs.

The Best Online Bachelor’s Programs rankings are based on factors such as graduation rates, indebtedness of new graduates, and academic and career support services offered to students.

U.S. News’ published methodology states: “The vast majority of students enrolled in these ranked programs have earned at least some college credit. They are more likely to be working professionals in their 20s to 40s looking to advance in or change their careers than be first-time college students. Consequently, the factors U.S. News selected to make comparisons between programs were not measures like high school class rank or standardized test scores. Instead, U.S. News chose factors that weigh how these programs are being delivered and their effectiveness at awarding affordable degrees in a reasonable amount of time.”

The methodology document also included how U.S. News assessed schools based on four general categories, stating:

  • Student engagement (40 percent): Quality online bachelor’s degree programs promote participation in courses, allowing students opportunities to readily interact with their instructors and classmates, as is possible in a campus-based setting. In turn, instructors not only are accessible and responsive, but they also are tasked with helping to create an experience rewarding enough that students stay enrolled and complete their degrees in a reasonable amount of time.
  • Faculty credentials and training (20 percent): Strong online programs employ instructors with academic credentials that mirror those of instructors for campus-based programs, and they have the resources to train these instructors to teach distance learners.
  • Student services and technology (20 percent): Programs that incorporate diverse online learning technologies allow greater flexibility for students to take classes from a distance. Outside of classes, strong support structures provide learning assistance, career guidance, and financial aid resources commensurate with quality campus-based programs.
  • Peer reputation (20 percent): A survey of high-ranking academic officials helps account for intangible factors affecting program quality that are not captured by statistics. Also, degrees from programs that are well respected by academics may be held in higher regard among employers.

Take a look at our wide range of online and hybrid degree programs designed for working professionals – and start reaching your potential ahead of schedule.
