For the 11th consecutive year, New York Institute of Technology is ranked among the top 50 universities in the North in the U.S. News & World Report 2022 rankings announced today. The university maintained its strong position at No. 34 in the regional rankings. In addition to criteria that distinguishes the institution from its peers (low student-to-faculty ratio, small class sizes, value, and diversity), the strong ranking positions this year are attributable to the university’s continued efforts in improving the overall graduation rate, financial resources per student, and freshman retention rate.
