In U.S. News' 2016 Best Online Program rankings released Tuesday, Regent's online bachelors programs came in at 17th in the nation.
Since 2012, the university has placed well in U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings for online degree programs. This year's rankings continue that trend with the university's master's degree programs in education and business receiving high marks.
"Whether students study online or on campus with us, Regent provides the highest quality, best-value Christian education possible," said Dr. Gerson Moreno-Riaño, Regent's executive vice president for academic affairs.
The U.S. News ranking shows that Regent's online bachelor's degree programs are first among public and private four-year colleges in Virginia, as well as second among schools in the Council of Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU).
Regent's master's degrees in education ranked first in Virginia and among CCCU schools, placing 46th nationally.

"Once again, these U.S. News rankings offer strong evidence of the quality our university offers and demonstrates our commitment to excellence," Moreno-Riaño said.
