2017 College Ranking

WalletHub, Oct 10, 2017 

In a fierce global economy, a college degree today is necessary both for securing employment and staying ahead of the competition. And though success ultimately rests on students’ own determination and performance, the quality of the schools they choose — for the hefty price they often must pay — can help ensure students are well prepared for the demands of the real world.

To determine the top-performing schools at the lowest possible costs to undergraduates, Wallet Hub's data team compared nearly 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. across 27 key measures. The data set — grouped into seven categories, such as Student Selectivity, Cost & Financing and Career Outcomes — ranges from student-faculty ratio to graduation rate to post-attendance median salary.

Recognizing the challenge of predicting future outcomes, WalletHub’s Best Colleges ranking also aims to lend insight by analyzing post-attendance metrics — the student-loan default rate and the share of former students outearning high school graduates, for instance — to indicate the value of the education students can expect to receive beyond their undergraduate studies.

Read on for their findings, a ranking by region and a full description of their methodology. Below the ranking results, a Q&A between WalletHub and a panel of researchers in relevant fields addresses today’s most pressing financial issues in higher education. Separate rankings for colleges and for universities also are available on WalletHub.
