Rochester Institute of Technology is recognized in several categories for educational quality and value in the 2015 edition of U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges. Since U.S. News began ranking colleges in 1983, RIT has consistently been listed among the top regional universities. RIT leaders anticipate moving to the national research category next year with the university’s growth in doctoral programs.

For the 2015 ranking, RIT placed eighth in the “Best Regional Universities (North)” category in the latest report among hundreds of schools that offer a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs. 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 fifth among regional universities (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. “The higher the quality of program and the lower the cost, the better the deal,” according to U.S. News.

In the “Focus on Student Success” category, RIT was listed as one of only 13 colleges nationally recognized for excellence in the “Internships” listing. RIT’s cooperative education program, which began in 1912, remains one of the largest in the nation and has been recognized every year since U.S. News began the category in 2002. More.
