New York Institute of Technology continued its rise on U.S. News & World Reports’ ranking of Best Regional Universities in the North this year, released on September 13. Moving up nine spots in the 2017 rankings to No. 32, the university represented well in categories reflecting the ever-increasing quality of students it attracts and its dedication to providing students with robust facilities and services as well as small class sizes and personalized attention by expert faculty. The annual rankings, considered by many in higher education to be the de facto industry standard, also measure such factors as reputation and peer assessment, alumni giving rates, and retention/graduation rates. This year, NYIT was the highest-ranked Long Island college in its category, and one of three New York City colleges in the top 40.
NYIT has received a record number of applications for fall 2016 admission, topping more than 10,000 for the first time,” says Ron Maggiore, NYIT vice president for enrollment services. “The quality of the applicant pool, as reflected in high school performance and standardized test scores, has been rising steadily for the past several years. The quality and value of an NYIT degree attracts many of the best and the brightest in our region and the world.”
USNWR also ranked NYIT No. 17 on its list of the 2017 Best Colleges for Veterans in its North regional peer group; last year, its rank was 32.
