UMD Ranked Among Top 15 Public Colleges by Forbes

Bookmark and Share


The University of Maryland ranked No. 14 among public colleges, according to Forbes’ 2016 list of America’s Top Colleges. In the 9th annual rankings, the university also ranked in the Top 100 among all U.S. colleges, at No. 82. 

To calculate rankings, Forbes partnered with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP) to determine students’ return on investment (ROI) at more than 600 U.S. colleges. CCAP used 12 factors to calculate the rankings, each of which fell into one of five general categories, including student satisfaction, post-graduate success, student debt, graduation rate and academic success. In addition, Forbes utilized data from the National Center for Education and PayScale. 

Earlier this year, UMD was also named a Best Value College by Forbes, ranked at No. 24. The best value rankings were based on tuition costs, school quality, graduation success rates and post-grad earnings.
