University of Findlay has been nationally ranked by U.S. News and World Report for the 15th consecutive year. The 2021 Best National University Rankings comprises over 300 universities around the country.

“To be included in this prestigious, national ranking of universities is certainly an honor,” said University of Findlay President Katherine Fell, Ph.D. “This achievement is proof of our faculty and staff’s commitment to the University’s mission to equip students for meaningful lives and productive careers.”

U.S. News considered many factors when ranking colleges and universities including: graduation and retention rates, social mobility, faculty resources, student selectivity, and financial resources for students. Findlay is proud to be ranked nationally at 241 out of 389 schools considered.

The University also ranked 24 out of 191 schools in the country for Social Mobility. According to U.S. News, the social mobility ranking, “measures how well schools graduated students who received federal Pell Grants.” This ranking shows Findlay’s commitment to providing excellent financial aid and support services for those who need it, and to ensure that students of all socioeconomic levels have the opportunity to fulfill their dream of becoming a college graduate.

A third ranking the University earned is A+ School for B Students with a rank of 74 out of 111 schools. U.S. News provides this ranking to help students, “with less-than-stellar test scores or a so-so GPA,” find quality schools.

Finally, Findlay was ranked in the 75th percentile of U.S. News & World report’s first-ever published Computer Science Program rankings. The report states the rankings, “are based solely on the judgments of deans and senior faculty members of computer science departments at institutions across the country.”
