Morrisville State ranks in U.S. News and World Report

MORRISVILLE, NY—Morrisville State has been ranked, by U.S. News and World Report, second among regional colleges nationwide for outperforming its anticipated graduation metric.

The anticipated graduation metric was developed by USNWR as an attempt to capture how well a college is able to support students so they are able to graduate with a degree, and to find where students succeed beyond what their test scores and other key factors might otherwise predict. The formula takes into account many factors including the student body’s financial composition and test scores, as well as the college’s average financial expenditures per student.

“We offer hands-on, experiential education at its best by integrating classroom theories and concepts with out-of-classroom learning experiences, said Morrisville State Provost David Rogers. “This approach inspires students to persist through their internships to become successful graduates.”

Along with the kudos, which appears in the U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges 2014 issue, Morrisville State was ranked among the Best Regional Colleges in the North and is listed in the Top Public Schools, Regional Colleges North.

The USNWR rankings are released annually and rely on data provided by universities to produce college rankings on a variety of factors reflecting academic quality.
