New York Tech Jumps in U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges Ranking

September 12, 2022

New York Institute of Technology is ranked among the top 25 universities in the North and for the 12th consecutive year, is ranked among the top 50 universities in the North in the U.S. News & World Report 2022-2023 Best Colleges rankings announced today. The university improved its position to No. 22 in the regional rankings, up from No. 34 last year. In addition to criteria that distinguish the institution from its peers (low student-to-faculty ratio, small class sizes, value, and diversity), the strong ranking positions also are attributable to the university’s continued efforts in improving overall graduation and retention rates, as well as the financial resources per student.

  • #22 Best Regional Universities (North), up from the #34 position it held for the past two years
