Texas Tech has received a high ranking for their online programs for veterans.

Tech was ranked second among Best Online Graduate Engineering Programs for Veterans by U.S. News and World Report.

This is the second year for this particular ranking, and is 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.

In order to be considered in the rankings, a school must be certified for the GI Bill, participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program or be a public institution that charges in-state tuition for all out-of-state veterans; be affiliated with schools that are members of the Servicemembers Opportunity Colleges Consortium; and offer at least one course in the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support catalog.

Schools evaluated in the ranking must have been awarded a numerical rank in USNWR’s Best Online Programs. Tech’s program was ranked 50th out of 293 on that list.

“I am very pleased that the efforts of our faculty and staff are being recognized for the quality online programs they provide,” said Al Sacco Jr., dean of the Whitacre College of Engineering. “It is especially satisfying that we are recognized for helping to educate our nation’s veterans who have served and are serving our country.”

TTU Worldwide eLearning allows students to earn web-based bachelor’s degrees in a number of areas, offers 14 different master’s degrees, seven doctoral degrees, and 13 online graduate certificates.
