Rankings

The rankings provided by Forbes and US News are trusted everywhere, as long as US universities are concerned. It is said that the more information that a prospective student has about a university, the better it is. The ranking of a university helps a student overcome the confusion of which university/college is right for them and also other prospects. Before taking admission, a student can assess the university chosen by them on various grounds like research excellence, the performance of its students after graduation, and their experience, among others. Notably, for the rankings, the two publications, US News and Forbes, are trusted everywhere. However, it should be noted that Centenary University does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest ranking of these two publications.
