The College of New Jersey once again is the top public college in U.S. News and World Report’s list of Regional Universities (North).
Money magazine’s college ranking considers quality, affordability and outcomes. The publication ranks TCNJ #48 in the nation among all institutions of higher education and at #12 among all medium-sized colleges and universities. TCNJ remains the top public institution in New Jersey.
The Princeton Review named TCNJ one of the best 385 colleges in the nation for 2020, based on student evaluations. The College of New Jersey remains a top contender in the search for affordable education, once again ranking among Princeton Review’s “Best Value Colleges.” The site also recognized TCNJ as one of the most academically outstanding colleges in the Northeast — a designation we share with Princeton, Yale, and the University of Pennsylvania. TCNJ is featured in the publication’s “Guide to 399 Green Colleges,” which rewards colleges for their outstanding commitment to environmental sustainability.
According to a report by Money magazine, TCNJ is one of 20 public colleges nationwide—and one of only two in the state—that are “most likely to pay off financially.”
TCNJ ranks #6 and is the only New Jersey school on the list.
The magazine’s unique rankings are based on three key criteria: social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs), and service (encouraging students to give something back to their country).
