The University of La Verne is the only university in Los Angeles County to be listed as one of the top 100 schools in the US News & World Report, ranking online undergraduate programs in the United States.
La Verne also ranks 13th in the nation, an impressive achievement.
US News & World Report evaluated the online programs based on several factors including academic and career support services, graduation rates and indebtedness of new graduates.
"The US News & World Report ranking demonstrates that we have developed an online program that is a model for Los Angeles County, validating this effective option we offer our students,” said La Verne President Devorah Lieberman. “We are extremely proud of our accomplishments and to be recognized for our online programs.”
Launched in the 2000 academic year, La Verne’s online program allows students the opportunity to receive a college education without having to attend classes on a physical campus. Online courses are completed in ten week sessions, or terms, and require approximately eight to 10 hours of dedicated time per course per week, depending on the student.
Though the courses are completely online, students still receive plenty of support from faculty and staff dedicated to the online programs.
Online bachelor’s degrees offered include B.A. business administration, B.S. organizational management and B.S. public administration.
La Verne’s online graduate business program was also ranked as one of the top 100 in the country.
