Today US News released their newest list of Best Colleges in the U.S. and we are pleased that Marymount California climbed 3 places over last year to rank #15 of 64 colleges in the Western region.
How Rankings are Made
U.S. News gathers data from and about each school in up to 15 areas related to academic excellence. Each indicator is assigned a weight (expressed as a percentage) based on U.S. News’ judgments about which measures of quality matter most.
Third, the colleges are ranked based on their overall scores. U.S. News publishes the numerical rank of the top three-fourths of schools in each category; the remaining lowest-ranked schools in each category are placed into a second tier based on their overall score. Schools in the second tier are labeled Rank Not Published and listed alphabetically.
The data for the 2018 edition of Best Colleges were gathered in spring and summer 2017.
MCU Congratulates Students, Faculty, Staff and our Board of Directors for helping to contribute to the University’s continuing success.
