Serving America's Military

Oregon State again ranked America's #3 online university for veterans

U.S. News & World Report lists Ecampus programs among the nation's top 5 for military members

Jan. 26, 2021

Oregon State University was honored for its commitment to military service members for the seventh year in a row when U.S. News & World Report ranked its online bachelor's degree programs No. 3 in the nation for veterans.

This marks the third straight year Oregon State Ecampus has been ranked third, and it's the fifth time in the top five since 2015.

Bryan Zacher Play

With the assistance of OSU's military certifying officials, U.S. Army veteran Bryan Zacher enrolls in the fisheries and wildlife program to pursue his dream of working with salmon and steelhead.

The rankings identify nearly 100 programs that provide veterans with high-quality, flexible online bachelor's programs. Oregon State now delivers nearly 40 such programs via the university’s online education division, OSU Ecampus.

To qualify for the veterans rankings, an institution must be certified for the GI Bill, and the online programs must belong to schools participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program or to public institutions that charge in-state tuition for all out-of-state veterans. OSU meets these criteria.

The methodology also states that a program must have enrolled a critical mass of students with military backgrounds.

Oregon State ranks No. 4 on the overall 2021 Best Online Bachelor's Programs list.
