Monmouth University Earns Top 40 Ranking from U.S. News & World Report for Third Year in a Row

Monmouth University has ranked in the top 40 in U.S. News & World Report’s annual roster of Best Colleges for the third year in a row. Monmouth is ranked 37 and is one of the fasting-rising universities in its category (Regional Universities North) over the last decade, rising 39 spots since 2005. The University ranked 13th as a best college for veterans.

Monmouth University is also one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduate education, according to The Princeton Review. The education services company features the school in the new 2015 edition of its annual higher education guide, “The Best 379 Colleges.”

In addition, Monmouth was included on Money magazine’s first-ever college rankings list of “Best Colleges for Your Money.”

“We are delighted to be recognized by U.S. News & World Report and Princeton Review as one of the best colleges in the nation, and by Money magazine as an institution that provides outstanding value to our students,” said President Paul R. Brown.

“One of our core values, and strengths, is offering a highly personalized and transformative learning experience which prepares our graduates to be life-long learners,” Brown said.

The 2015 edition of U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges includes data on nearly 1,800 schools nationwide to help parents and students evaluate their options. Eligible schools are ranked on up to 16 measures of academic excellence. Outcome-related measures, such as graduation and retention rates, account for 30 percent of the rankings and are the most heavily weighted factors in the methodology. For more information, visit

Only about 15% of America’s 2,500 four-year colleges, and only four colleges outside the U.S., are profiled in The Princeton Review’s college guide. The Princeton Review does not rank the colleges in the book academically or from 1 to 379 in any category. The 80-question survey asks students to rate their own schools on several topics and report on their campus experiences. For more information, visit
