Rankings

The ranking of a particular university helps a student decide where to apply, which is always a tough decision. The two popular publications, US News and Forbes, are among the most trusted publications when it comes to the rankings of an educational institution. The ranking of a university plays an important role in helping a prospective candidate choosing the right university. It helps them assess the university's performance based on several factors, which include research excellence, the performance of the students after they complete their education, student experience, and most importantly academic success. However, it is to be noted that Quincy University does not feature in the list of top colleges, according to the latest rankings by these two publications.
