Forbes ranks USD as one of Americas Top Colleges
USD is ranked among the publication’s Top Colleges overall and also placed as one of Forbes’ Top Research Universities and Best in the Midwest.
The Forbes list of 650 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by its belief in “output” over “input.” Rather than focusing heavily on selectivity metrics such as high school class rank, SAT scores and the like, Forbes examines what students are getting out of college using categories like Student Satisfaction, Post-Graduate Success, Graduation Rate, Academic Success and Student Debt to categorize its top colleges.
“It’s a nice honor to be recognized nationally by Forbes, especially considering their criteria in ranking America’s Top Colleges because student success and educational value are important factors in their rationale,” said Scott Pohlson, vice president of Enrollment, Marketing and University Relations.
America’s Top Colleges also highlights faculty expertise, career prospects, and emphasizes financial prudence, so students can make an informed, consumer choice when it comes to selecting a college or university.
