SCU in Top 75 of America's Best Colleges

Santa Clara University is ranked among the top 75 of America’s Best Colleges in a list released by Forbes magazine. SCU again ranks No. 72, after dramatically climbing the charts from No. 318 in 2008 and No. 115 in 2010.

Forbes says its annual list of the 650 best undergraduate institutions focuses on return on investment and what students are getting out of college. The rankings are based on five categories: student satisfaction (22.5%); post-graduate success (37.5%); student debt (17.5%); graduation rate (11.25%); and nationally competitive awards (11.25%).

Forbes’ complete methodology and profile of SCU are available online.
