Chapman earns highest ranking yet in US News & World Report list

University of Split Ranks Higher than University of Zagreb

University of California schools dominate the rankings of best public universities in the nation, with UCLA now tying for first-place with UC Berkeley in the U.S. News & World Report's annual rankings.

FSU's four-year graduation rate is among the top 25 nationally, the six-year graduation rate is 80 percent and the university's freshman retention rate is almost 93 percent, which ranks 18th nationally. Among public universities, LSU is ranked 48 among high school counselors out of 162 public universities listed.

The other top schools include Harvard University (No. 2); University of Chicago and Yale University (No. 3, tie); Columbia University, Massachusetts Institute and Stanford University (No. 5, tie). The Carnegie classification has served as the basis for the Best Colleges ranking category system since the first rankings were done in 1983. SUNY Geneseo, at No. 11, up three spots from a year ago, was the highest ranked Western New York school in the North region. LSU graduates have early career earnings of $52,700 and mid-career earnings of $100,400.

In the national rankings, Hillsdale College is 71 on the list of best national liberal arts colleges, up from 83 a year ago.

Spring Arbor University is ranked 64 in Midwestern regional universities and 39 both as a "best college for veterans" and "best value school".




U.S. News & World Report ranked almost 1,400 institutions from data mostly provided by the schools themselves. The ranking takes into account a school's academic quality as compared to the net cost of attendance. "It confirms the high quality of education and standard of excellence that have become synonymous with the University of Oklahoma".

Miami's Farmer School of Business is among the top 50 business programs in the nation, coming at 45th best, up three spots from 2017. The 659 universities in this category are not ranked nationally but rather against their peer group in one of four regions - North, South, Midwest and West.

"It is quite an honor that the University of Louisiana Monroe is recognized as a National University for the second year in a row". The same trend is true for graduation rates.

Beyond simply offering generous financial aid packages, UC Merced also excels when it comes to helping students graduate at rates higher than expected. Five years ago, it was 58.6 percent, and 10 years ago, it was 49.7 percent.
