Albright College is one of only 797 college and universities to be nationally ranked by the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education (WSJ/Times), for 2021. Albright also ranked 142 out of 257 on the organization’s Northeast region list.
Albright’s national WSJ/Times recognition follows several other key rankings released this month, including recognition as a Top 40 National College for Social Mobility by U.S. News and World Report, and rankings by Washington Monthly for Best Liberal Arts Colleges (120 out of 218) and Best Bang for the Buck in the Northeast (157 out of 397). The Princeton Review also named Albright one of only 224 Best Colleges in the Northeast, this September.
Methodology for the WSJ/Times ranking focuses on four key pillars. Forty percent of the overall score is based on student outcomes, 30% on college resources, 20% on student engagement and 10% on the college’s learning environment. Ranking data come from a variety of sources including IPEDS, the College Scorecard, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the THE US Student Survey and the THE Academic Survey.
