  • Kerala University among top 1000 globally

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. The ranking is based on surveys of top academics such as presidents, provosts and admissions deans who rank schools that are making the most innovative improvements in terms of curriculum, faculty, students, campus life, technology and facilities. Western is one of four IL public universities appearing in the top 100.

The University of SC was tied for 49th among national public universities with the University of New Hampshire.

Cody said those measures include graduation rates, affordability and student and alumni successes.

USC Upstate was ranked No. 2 for regional public colleges, the No. 2 regional college for veterans and the No. 6 college for ethnic diversity.

The rankings can bring a lot of attention to schools, but even top-rated ones like U. of C. typically urge potential students to look beyond the number.

To even be considered for the list, universities have to have undergraduate and graduate programs.

"Uncovering new talents and honing their abilities through opportunities such as undergraduate research and specialized leadership programs allow TU students to thrive in college, in their careers and in the world", he said.

Mount St. Joseph University also dropped about 10 spots for the second year in a row to 87 among regional universities in the Midwest.
