SUNY Delhi Ranked Among Nation's Top Online Colleges by U.S. News and World Report

DELHI, NY (01/14/2012)(readMedia)-- SUNY Delhi ranks among the Top 50 colleges in the nation for online baccalaureate degree education, according to U.S. News and World Report. The rankings mark the first time that U.S. News and World Report has evaluated online higher education programs and represents the latest national recognition for Delhi's online programs.

"We are proud to be named an online education leader," said SUNY Delhi President Candace S. Vancko. "It recognizes SUNY Delhi's commitment to delivering high quality, online programs that are innovative, flexible and affordable."

U.S. News ranked Delhi 42nd of 172 colleges and universities for Student Engagement and Assessment and 46th of 179 colleges and universities for Student Services and Technology.

SUNY Delhi's highly successful RN to BSN program was the first degree of its kind to be offered totally online in New York State. Enrollment has grown from 20 students in 2008 to nearly 500 today. Delhi has also offered an online BBA in Veterinary Technology Management since 2006.

"Our faculty and staff have done an outstanding job of creating a quality program that meets the needs of the nursing profession," said Dr. Mary Pat Lewis, Associate Dean of SUNY Delhi's School of Nursing. "This ranking validates that SUNY Delhi is able to sustain quality instruction, program outcomes, and student support services."

SUNY Delhi's RN to BSN curriculum is designed for working registered nurses who wish to pursue a bachelor's degree. Online delivery offers students greater versatility and flexibility with students able to enroll either part-time or full-time in the fall, spring or summer semesters. Practical, hands-on experiences for select courses are completed in the student's hometown area.

SUNY Delhi's online RN to BSN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC) and recently was selected by the Continuing Education Association of New York State (CEANY) as the 2010 winner of the James C. Hall, Jr. Exemplary Program Award. The program has also been featured by InsideHigherEd.
