UCF has again received recognition for its excellence in online degree offerings for student-veterans, ranking No. 11 on College Consensus’ 2024 Best Online Colleges for Veterans list.

College Consensus rankings combine the results of the most respected college ranking systems — such as Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, and Washington Monthly — with the averaged ratings of thousands of real student reviews from around the web to create its rankings. Earlier the month, UCF was ranked No. 5 for Best Online Bachelor’s Programs for Veterans by U.S. News & World Report.

“With dedicated resources, online program options, and a supportive environment, UCF stands out as an excellent choice for military veterans seeking to pursue a bachelor’s degree online,” College Consensus stated in its rankings.

UCF is a Yellow Ribbon Program participant, ensuring that eligible veterans receive financial support beyond what the GI Bill covers. The university also prioritizes a veteran-friendly campus culture, fostering a sense of community among military-affiliated students.

There are about 1,400 student-veterans at UCF, and there are a range of services, including the Office of Military and Veteran Student Success, offered to support them.

In recent years, UCF has continuously received recognition for its commitment, effort, and success in creating sustainable and meaningful benefit for the student-veteran community on campus. U.S. News & World Report ranked UCF among the nation’s Best Colleges for Veteran in its 2024 undergraduate list. In 2022, UCF received the Purple Heart Designation from the Military Order of the Purple Heart. The university also received the Silver Award on the 2022-23 Military Friendly Schools list.
