Top 50 Best Online Bachelors for Veterans

| | 1 minute read

Online education is advantageous for a lot of people; full-time workers, stay-at-home parents, or people with full-time family obligations. But there is a large group of people that online education is the most advantageous for, our military veterans and active-service members! Not knowing where your next home-base might be, it is imperative for our military students to have access to an education that goes with them from an institution they can trust.

Which is why we are honored to be listed as one of U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 Best Online Bachelors for Veterans!

Our Center for Veterans, Service Members and Families is dedicated to providing the very best experience to our military students during their time at Southern Miss. From resources, support, and transition assistance, the Center is there to guide you. They work hard to continue reaching Military Friendly® School Gold Status!

Just like our Center for Veterans, Service Members and Families, U.S. News & World Report does not take their rankings lightly. Their ranking methodology is based on “program reputation, faculty credentials, retention rates and graduate debt loads” as well as looking at GI Bill certifications and critical mass of students with military backgrounds.

This thorough methodology makes us proud of our ranking! And it makes us proud to be able to offer a quality, supportive, online education experience to those who deserve it most – our military!
