Money ranks colleges based on three categories—quality of education, affordability and alumni success. Of those categories, each was broken down into specific factors for a total of 27 factors. They also added at least one “value-added” measure to each category, revealing a school’s performance after subtracting the impact of its average student’s test scores and percentage of low-income students. To be ranked, a school had to have at least 500 undergraduate students and at least 150 full-time first-time undergraduate students, have sufficient and reliable data to be analyzed, not be in financial distress and have a graduation rate that was at or above the median for its institutional category (public or private).
