NJ Has Record 6 Universities in National Top 100 Rankings

U.S. News and World Report released its annual ranking of the top 100 universities in the nation today, with Princeton University topping the list for the 13th year in a row. Additionally, all three Rutgers University campuses – New Brunswick (No. 40), Newark (No. 82) and Camden (No. 98) – made the list together for the first time.

The other New Jersey institutions to make the top 100 include Stevens Institute of Technology (No. 76) and the New Jersey Institute of Technology (No. 86), marking a record six total schools in the top 100 for the Garden State.

Only four other states had more schools in the national Top 100 than New Jersey: California (16), New York (11), Massachusetts (9) and Pennsylvania (8). Texas also had six schools.

U.S. News & World Report made refinements to this year’s rankings formula by dropping five longstanding factors, modifying the weights of several other factors, and introducing a few new ones. There was an increased emphasis on how often schools’ students from all socioeconomic backgrounds earned degrees and took advantage of information on graduate outcomes that was not available until recently.

Here is a look at how other New Jersey universities ranked beyond the top 100:

  • No. 1: Princeton University
  • No. 40: Rutgers University – New Brunswick
  • No. 76: Stevens Institute of Technology
  • No. 82: Rutgers University – Newark
  • No. 86: New Jersey Institute of Technology
  • No. 98: Rutgers University – Camden
  • No. 151: Seton Hall University
  • No. 159: Stockton University
  • No. 163: Montclair State University
