U.S. News & World Report ranks GSC as the top New Hampshire institution for online higher education

In its annual compilation of “Best Online Degree Programs,” U.S. News & World Report has awarded Granite State College (GSC) two top rankings for 2015.

In both categories, GSC is the #1 ranked institution in New Hampshire. Nationwide, GSC ranks #63 for online bachelor’s programs and #44 for online graduate business degrees.
