US News College Rankings

WASHINGTON, Sept. 12, 2022 — U.S. News & World Report, a global authority in education rankings, announced the 2022-2023 Best Colleges in the USA today. The rankings evaluate 1,500 colleges and universities on up to 17 measures of academic quality. In addition, they serve as a guide for prospective students and their families.

“For nearly 40 years, the Best Colleges methodology has continuously evolved to reflect changes in the higher education landscape and the interests of prospective students,” said Kim Castro, editor and chief content officer at U.S. News. “Guiding that evolution is U.S. News’ mission of providing useful data and information to help with one of life’s biggest decisions.”

This year’s rankings include a more comprehensive measure of faculty resources and updates to the ranking categories.

To calculate the rankings, U.S. News focuses on academic quality and emphasizes outcome measures - including graduation rates, retention rates, graduate indebtedness, and social mobility. Outcomes are the most highly weighted ranking factor, contributing 40% to each school’s overall score.
