Oregon State University held onto its top 10 ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s latest list of best online bachelor’s degree programs in the country.

OSU received an overall score of 93 out of 100 points in the magazine’s 2016 rankings, released on Tuesday.

That was good enough to place OSU’s Ecampus program in a four-way tie for seventh place with Ohio State University, Florida’s Daytona State College and the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

It was the second straight year OSU finished in the top 10. This year’s top-rated programs were Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University-Worldwide in Daytona Beach, Florida, and Pennsylvania State University-World Campus, which tied for first place. Rounding out the top 10 were Western Kentucky University, the University of Illinois-Chicago, University of Georgia and Temple University.

Programs are ranked on a variety of factors, including student debt, graduation rates, and academic and career support services.

Ecampus offers 20 bachelor’s degree programs, with computer science being the most popular. According to U.S. News, OSU’s online undergraduate offerings have a total enrollment of 3,989 students, although the university expects close to 20,000 students to take at least one online class this year.
