Rankings

The rankings provided by Forbes and US News are trusted everywhere, as long as US universities are concerned. The ranking of a university is an important parameter by which a prospective student can decide whether they wish to take admission or not. Generally, the ranking of a university is considered a great way to gauge its performance on several factors, which include research excellence, the performance of the students after they complete their education, student experience, and most importantly academic success. The rankings by two well-known publications, US News and Forbes, are considered trustworthy by applicants and academic experts. However, it is to be noted that Claflin University does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest ranking by these publications.
