RIT is again recognized for educational quality and value in the annual U.S. News & World Report: America’s Best Colleges.
RIT ranked seventh in the “Best Universities–Master’s (North region)” category in the 2013 report. RIT also received the second highest peer assessment score, which is a survey of presidents, provosts and deans from other universities judging a school’s academic excellence.
In the “Great Schools, Great Prices” category, RIT ranked third among master’s universities in the North. The formula used to determine which schools offer the best value relates to a school’s academic quality to the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of financial aid. In the “Focus on Student Success” category, RIT was listed as one of only 12 colleges nationally recognized for excellence in the “Internships” listing. Among the best programs for undergraduate business, RIT ranked 56th in the latest survey. RIT is also in the top 64 undergraduate engineering programs among universities where the highest degree is a doctorate.
