Penn State’s World Cam­pus has been ranked No. 1 on TheBestS­chools.org’s 50 Best On­line Col­leges & Univer­si­ties 2019 list.

In its two decades of ex­is­tence, Penn State’s World Cam­pus has grown to be the univer­sity’s sec­ond-largest cam­pus. Ac­cord­ing to its web­site, it has al­most 20,000 stu­dents.

World Cam­pus of­fers more than 150 ac­cred­ited grad­u­ate de­grees, un­der­grad­u­ate de­grees, cer­tifi­cates and mi­nors.

“World Cam­pus grad­u­ates and tra­di­tional Penn State stu­dents will earn the same highly re­spected de­gree, as well as mem­ber­ship in the na­tion’s largest alumni net­work,” TheBestS­chools.org said.

The rank­ing pointed to on­line stu­dents re­ceiv­ing in­struc­tion from the same “world-class” fac­ulty mem­bers who teach on Penn State’s cam­puses. Ad­di­tion­ally, the rank­ing cites on­line stu­dents’ ac­cess to aca­demic ad­vis­ers, ca­reer ser­vices, on­line tu­tor­ing and li­brary ser­vices.

In Jan­uary, Penn State was ranked in the top 10 of six cat­e­gories in U.S. News & World Re­port’s 2018 Best On­line Pro­grams — No. 4, on­line grad­u­ate en­gi­neer­ing; No. 5, on­line grad­u­ate busi­ness; No. 7 (tie), on­line bach­e­lor’s de­grees; No. 8 (tie), on­line grad­u­ate com­puter in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy; No. 8 (tie), on­line grad­u­ate ed­u­ca­tion; and No. 10, on­line MBA.
