U.S. News has released its first ever rankings of the Best Online University Programs for Veterans, featuring colleges that offer bachelor’s degrees and master's programs in education, nursing, engineering and business.

All the institutions that qualified are certified for the GI Bill and participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program, two federal initiatives designed to help veterans reduce the cost of education.

The programs listed have all been designed to improve the higher education experience for veterans, according to the report. The schools involved have also promised to consider granting academic credit for military training.

To get on to the "Best Of" lists the 153 degree programs included in these new lists had to be completely online and had to be ranked in U.S. News’ general 2013 Best Online Education Programs.
