BSC recognized as top online vocational school
The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource for higher education and college accreditation information, has recognized Bismarck State College as the #1 Top Online Vocational School in the nation for the 2016-17 school year.
 
“We wanted to highlight schools like Bismarck State College, who are striving for excellence in education,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “These colleges offer an exceptional educational experience, upholding rigorous accreditation standards and showing an overall commitment to maximizing student success.”
 
The Community for Accredited Online Schools also recognized four specific BSC programs in the top 20 in the nation. To qualify for this ranking higher education institutions must hold public or private not-for-profit status and carry institutional accreditation. Top schools are determined by using a value-based methodology that analyzes more than a dozen qualitative and quantitative data points. More than a dozen different school-specific metrics, from graduation rates to student-teacher ratios, are weighed against one another to determine individual school scores and placement on rankings.
