COLORADO SPRINGS -- For seven consecutive years, U.S. News & World Report has recognized Colorado Technical University (CTU) among its Best Online Programs lists.
Most recently, CTU ranked among the 2021 Best Online Bachelor's Programs and Best Online Bachelor's Programs for Veterans.
"Being named among the universities in the Best Online Programs year-after-year is a great honor," said CTU President Andrew H. Hurst.
"CTU's commitment to quality degree programs and student support guides us, and we are grateful to receive these rankings again in 2021."
As a media company dedicated to helping citizens, consumers, business leaders and policy officials make important decisions, U.S. News & World Report publishes independent reporting, rankings, data journalism and advice that have earned their readers' trust for more than 85 years.
U.S. News & World Report ranks programs that operate predominantly online; however, the rankings do not differentiate between programs operated by for-profit and nonprofit schools.
The collection of information necessary to create the 2021 Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings required compiling a list of schools offering bachelor's degree programs online and collecting data from these schools.
In developing the 2021 Best Online Bachelor's Programs rankings, U.S. News & World Report assessed online colleges based on four general categories: student engagement, services and technologies available to students, faculty credentials and training, as well as expert opinion on the academic quality of programs.
"CTU's recognition among these rankings continues to affirm our dedication to our students and our faculty and staff's commitment to growing as leaders in hybrid learning and online education,” said Dr. Connie Johnson, CTU's chief academic officer and provost,"
CTU ranked for the following 2021 online education categories by U.S. News:
- Best Online Bachelor's Programs (7th consecutive year)
- Best Online Bachelor's Programs for Veterans (7th consecutive year)
- Best Online Master's in Criminal Justice Programs (7th consecutive year)
- Best Online Master's in Computer Information Technology Programs (7th consecutive year)
- Best Online MBA Programs (6th consecutive year)
- Best Online Master's in Business Programs, Excluding MBA (6th consecutive year)
- Best Online Master's in Engineering Programs (4th consecutive year)
- Best Online Master's in Nursing Programs (3rd consecutive year)
- Best Online Bachelor's in Business Programs (new ranking category)
For 55 years, CTU has helped students fit a real-world education into their busy daily lives. With nearly 90 degree programs and concentrations, students can pursue various degrees at the associate, bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels.
CTU provides flexible online classes, accessible through the University's Virtual Campus or the innovative CTU Mobile app. CTU also maintains two ground campus locations in Colorado Springs and Aurora.
With the help of faculty and industry professionals, CTU has awarded more than 109,000 degrees to traditional campus and online students since 1965.
