Forbes top colleges badgeTUSKEGEE, Ala. (July 7, 2016) — For the third consecutive year, Tuskegee University has earned recognition as one of Forbes magazine’s “America’s Top Colleges.” The institution is one of 10 Alabama schools on the list. Also, Tuskegee was ranked No. 187 among Southern schools, No. 225 among liberal arts universities and No. 395 among private colleges. 

To formulate their listing, Forbes partnered with the Washington, D.C.-based Center for College Affordability and Productivity to assess schools. There are several factors used for calculations, each of which fall into one of five general categories. The general areas are: Student Satisfaction (25%), Post-Graduate Success (32.5%), Student Debt (25%), Graduation Rate (7.5%), and Academic Success (10%).

According to the magazine: “This list of 660 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by our belief in “output” over “input.” Meaning, we’re not interested in what gets a student into college…. Our sights are set directly on ROI: What are students getting out of college?”
