Stevens Earns 4.5 Stars in New ‘Money’ Best Colleges in America 2023 Ranking

Stevens Institute of Technology has been awarded 4.5 out of 5 stars and is named one of America’s best colleges by Money magazine’s new college ranking system. Money’s Best Colleges in America rankings help prospective students and their families find colleges that combine quality of education and affordability.

The new, star-tiered list ranks 736 colleges from 26 data points including graduation rates, cost of attendance, financial aid and alumni salaries. To be considered for inclusion in Money’s rankings, schools must have a minimum of 500 undergraduate students enrolled, sufficient data that allows for analysis, be financially secure and possess a graduation rate at or above the median for its institutional category to be considered for the ranking. Last year, under a different ranking system, Money ranked Stevens No. 36 nationally for overall value.

“Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey specializes in interdisciplinary study, boasting 11 core research areas, including business and finance, data science, energy and environment, and resiliency and sustainability. It's probably no surprise, then, that the institute attracts a high-achieving cadre of about 4,000 undergraduate students, many of them from outside of New Jersey,” according to Money’s assessment of Stevens. “Students tend to thrive, to say the least, with an average 85% graduation rate.”
