Forbes Ranks Stockton Among ‘America’s Top Colleges’

Aug 31, 2016

Forbes has rated Stockton University as one of the top colleges or universities in the country in its 2016 listing “America’s Top Colleges.” Stockton, in Galloway, ranks No. 164 among public colleges and No. 489 out of 660 institutions that made the list, moving up 55 spots from the previous year, noted Maryjane Briant, news and media relations director.

“It is gratifying that Stockton is continuing to gain national recognition,” President Harvey Kesselman remarked. “Forbes took note of Stockton’s small class sizes, with a student-faculty ratio of 17:1, and the fact that nearly all of our students attend full-time, leading to successful graduation rates.”

As Forbes says of its rankings, “This list of 660 schools distinguishes itself from competitors by our belief in ‘output’ over ‘input.’ Meaning, we’re not interested in what gets a student into college, like our peers who focus heavily on selectivity metrics such as high school class rank, SAT scores and the like. Our sights are set directly on ROI (return on investment): What are students getting out of college?”
