How the U.S. News and World Report ranks schools

Condensed Version of how the the U.S. News and World Report ranks schools. For more detailed information, click here. 

  1. Undergraduate academic reputation (22.5%)
    1. The U.S. News ranking formula gives significant weight to the opinions of those in a position to judge a school's undergraduate academic excellence. The academic peer assessment survey allows top academics – presidents, provosts and deans of admissions – to account for intangibles at peer institutions, such as faculty dedication to teaching. 
  2. Retention (22.5%)
    1. The higher the proportion of first-year students who return to campus for sophomore year and eventually graduate, the better a school is apt to be at offering the classes and services that students need to succeed.
  3. Faculty resources (20%)
    1. Research shows that the more satisfied students are about their contact with professors, the more they will learn and the more likely they are to graduate
  4. Student selectivity (12.5%)
    1. This measure has three components. The admissions test scores for those who took the critical reading and math portions of the SAT and the composite ACT score. The proportion of enrolled first-year students in the top 10 percent of their class (National Universities/Liberal Arts Colleges) or those who graduated in the top quarter of their classes (Regional Universities). Finally, the ratio of students admitted to applicants received. 
  5. Financial resources (10%)
    1. Generous per-student spending indicates that a college can offer a wide variety of programs and services.
  6. Graduation rate performance (7.5%)

a.       This indicator of added value shows the effect of the college's programs and policies on the graduation rate of students after controlling for spending and student characteristics, such as test scores and the proportion receiving Pell Grants.

  1. Alumni contribution (5%)
    1. This reflects the average percentage of living alumni with bachelor's degrees who gave to their school.  This is an indirect measure of student satisfaction.
