Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Award



U.S. News & World Report Ranks Local, Non-Profit University 1st Place in Country in Two Categories


In 2017, for the second year in a row, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University was ranked as the #1 University in the United States for Online Degree Programs, as well as #1 in Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans by the U.S. News & World Report. ERAU is a private, non-profit, and regionally-accredited institution with over 130 locations across the globe, including a campus in Elizabeth City. The campus, which opened in 2006 on the U.S. Coast Guard Base, helps to meet the academic needs of active-duty and support personnel. The university offers a diverse range of technical degrees, including Aeronautics, Technical Management, Homeland Security, Engineering, and Unmanned Systems Applications, as well as a wide variety of other degrees.
The U.S. News & World Report's ranking on Best Colleges is a highly sought-after endorsement. Each year, college and university administrators across the nation keep their fingers crossed in the hopes that their institution will receive a top ranking. The ranking of a university is important because not only can a high ranking influence a student's school choice, but it may also impact the decision of employers who seek the best-trained employees, particularly in highly technical fields.
Within the ranking process, U.S. colleges and universities are categorized into four types of institutions: National Universities, National Liberal Arts Colleges, Regional Universities, and Regional Colleges. Academic quality is assessed for several indicators associated with academic quality and student success. Each school is then assigned a weighted score based on seven measures that will be entered into the ranking formula: Graduation and Retention Rates (22.5%), Undergraduate Academic Reputation (22.5%), Faculty Resources (20%), Student Selectivity (12.5%), Financial Resources (10%), Graduation Rate Performance (7.5%), and Alumni Giving (5%). Schools are then ranked based on their scores within each category.
“If you want to get an unbiased opinion on education quality, you should consult the U.S. News & World Report. If you want to gauge the quality of the academic support services a school offers, you need to go on an unannounced visit to the college or university you would like to attend,” said Dr. Judy Drago, Director of the Elizabeth City Campus.
