Florida colleges shine in new Money ranking

Money’s methodology for the ranking included several criteria to ensure a thorough assessment. The initial pool consisted of over 2,400 four-year public and private nonprofit colleges. To make the initial cut, a college had to:

  • Have at least 500 undergraduate students or 150 freshmen.
  • Have sufficient, reliable data to be analyzed.
  • Not be in financial distress.
  • Have a graduation rate at or above the median for its institutional category or a high “value-added” graduation rate, placing it in the top 25% after accounting for the student body.

From this pool, 745 schools met the requirements and were ranked based on 25 factors across three categories: quality of education, affordability, and outcomes.
