 BERKELEY COLLEGE RANKED IN TOP 100 BEST ONLINE BACHELOR'S
PROGRAMS FOR VETERANS BY U.S. NEWS & WORLD REPORT

Berkeley is one of ten colleges in New York and one of two in New Jersey to receive the distinction

 

For the third consecutive year, Berkeley College has been ranked among the Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans by U.S. News & World Report. Berkeley College was one of ten colleges in New York and one of two in New Jersey to receive the distinction. Berkeley College ranked No. 83. 

The Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs provides support to its student-veterans through six on-site veterans resource centers (VRCs) in New Jersey and New York, as well as through an Online VRC. At the VRCs, military students can meet with staff, network with their peers, and learn about Veterans Administration benefits. 

In April, the Berkeley College Office of Military and Veterans Affairs will honor veterans at its 4th Annual Salute to Veterans. The event will feature a presentation of and by veterans who participate in the Veterans History Project in conjunction with the U.S. Library of Congress; the awarding of honor cords to student-veterans who will graduate at this year’s Commencement Ceremony on April 29; the launch of the Goldstar Reflection Project to highlight and honor families of those lost in combat; and faculty or staff appreciation awards presented by Berkeley College student-veterans.

“Berkeley College continues to set the standard for military and veterans affairs programs and support,” said Richard E. Robitaille, EdD, Berkeley College Associate Vice President, Office of Military and Veterans Affairs. “From opening six on-site veterans resource centers and an online veterans resource center, to collaborating on national programs such as the Veterans History Project, Berkeley College strives to help our military and veteran population achieve rewarding and lasting careers after they graduate from Berkeley College.”

According to U.S. News & World Report, colleges are ranked on factors such as student engagement; faculty credentials and training; and student services and technology. Student engagement includes opportunities for students to interact with professors and fellow classmates in a campus-based setting, as well as an overall quality college experience that keeps students enrolled and on track to a degree.

Approximately 500 military students and veterans are enrolled at Berkeley College in New York and New Jersey, and through Berkeley College Online®. Berkeley College participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program under the G.I. Bill and collaborates on national ventures with the National Guard, the Army and the Air Force, the GoArmyEd distance learning program, and the Navy College Program Distance Learning Partnership.

A leader in providing career-focused education since 1931, Berkeley College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and enrolls approximately 8,300 students – including more than 700 international students – in its Baccalaureate and Associate degree and Certificate programs. Students can study in more than 20 career fields. Berkeley College is comprised of the Larry L. Luing School of Business, the School of Professional Studies, the School of Health Studies and the School of Liberal Arts. The School of Graduate Studies offers a Master of Business Administration degree in Management online and in Woodland Park, NJ.

Berkeley College has three New York locations – Midtown Manhattan, Brooklyn and White Plains. In New Jersey there are six locations – Clifton, Dover, Newark, Paramus, Woodbridge and Woodland Park. Berkeley College Online® serves a global population. In January 2016, U.S. News & World Report named Berkeley College one of the Best Colleges for Online Bachelor’s Degrees for the third consecutive year.  The website address is www.BerkeleyCollege.edu.
