Radford University named Hidden Gem in Virginia

Radford University is listed at No. 14 on Online Schools Guide recently released rankings of the Top 15 Hidden Gems in Virginia.

The editors at onlineschoolsguide.net searched for “smaller Virginia schools with an excellent academic reputation that offer online degree programs,” they said, and then created its top 15 rankings based on each school’s cost of attendance and the number of online offerings.

“Hidden Gems in Virginia offer quality education, online degree programs and are some of the best small schools in the commonwealth,” Online Schools Guide wrote in its news release announcing the rankings.

Radford University offers online undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs in the fields of business, computer science, criminal justice, data science, design thinking, education, English, geospatial intelligence and healthcare. The full list of programs is available on the Online Programs site at Radford.edu.

“At Radford University, our commitment is to meet learners where they are and provide flexible and affordable pathways to a degree,” said Bret Danilowicz, Ph.D., president of Radford University. “Our new Competency Based Education (CBE) courses and certificates along with our traditional online programs allow students from all backgrounds to have accessible options for high-quality education. Employers have found that graduates with Radford University online degrees and certificates are well-prepared for their career with the company.”


Known for its strong faculty-student bonds, innovative use of technology in the learning environment and vibrant student life on a beautiful 211-acre American classical campus, Radford University offers students many opportunities to get involved and succeed.

“Students at Radford University strive to be of service to the Commonwealth of Virginia and the nation in general through an array of academic, cultural, human service, and research programs,” Online Schools Guide said.
