U.S. News & World Report recently named Northland College as both a Best Regional College and a Best Value School in the Midwest.
Institutions are ranked based on a number of different criteria, and new rankings are released every year. This year, Northland College was named #19 in the Best Regional Colleges in the Midwest and #11 in the Best Value Schools in the Midwest. Eighty-six institutions were recognized in the Midwest, putting Northland at the top in both categories.
Rankings for Best Value Schools take academic quality and cost of attendance after financial aid into account.
Northland’s unique size fosters a powerful learning environment. Students report that they get to know their faculty members far better than what is possible at a larger institution, which is reflected in Northland’s 10:1 student-to-faculty ratio. In addition to strong academics, Northland offers competitive financial aid packages—and 100 percent of full-time, degree-seeking students receive aid of some kind.
The newest rankings appear in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 edition of Best Colleges.
The U.S. News & World Report rankings evaluate more than 1,400 colleges and universities on up to seventeen measures of academic quality. The 2023 rankings can be found online at usnews.com/best-colleges.
