NTC Named One of the Best Online Colleges

Northcentral Technical College, which operates a campus in Antigo, has been named a 2017 Best Online College in America by BestColleges.com for the third year in a row.

NTC ranked fourth in the nation for accredited schools offering online associate degrees in the 2017 analysis.

“NTC is proud to be recognized for our commitment to online educational opportunities,” President Lori Weyers said. “Whether you are a student in our innovative Virtual College or someone taking advantage of one of our many online courses or programs, we are dedicated to ensuring a flexible, engaging and quality student experience that mirrors the outstanding education you receive when you’re on campus.”

Using data collected from the National Center of Education Statistics and the institutions themselves, BestColleges.com included admissions, enrollment, retention, graduation rates, and cost of attendance to rank the top schools accordingly. All institutions included in the ranking are not-for-profit and offer at least six accredited, 100 percent online degree options.

“The Best Online Colleges ranking is intended to inform and guide prospective students toward institutions that provide a quality education and a meaningful learning experience at an affordable cost,” Stephanie Snider, General Manager of BestColleges.com., said. “As online higher education demand grows and more schools bring programs online, it’s important and necessary to hold institutions to a standard of excellence that students can depend upon when making their college choice.”

NTC’s Virtual College offers 47 associate degree and technical diploma programs, including programs in video production, medical coding, IT, supervisory management and more. Learners can also take advantage of the more than 20 short-term, certificate options offered through Virtual College.

“Virtual College is our most flexible option – classes begin weekly and students can complete their coursework on their own schedule,” Brad Gast, dean of continuing education & virtual college, said. “Once students begin with us, we remain committed to their success with dedicated advisors to guide them through the program.”
