Stockton University continues to impress with those who rank America's colleges and  universities.

Stockton has again improved its ranking among Regional Universities in the North, placing 7th among public universities in the 2020 U.S. News and World Report Best College rankings released Monday.

The university rose from 9th in 2019 to 7th in 2020. Stockton is also ranked 32nd among the 170 public and private universities in the North region, up from 41st in 2018 and 35th in 2019.

Stockton is also included on the list of 2020 Best Value Schools and as a Best Undergraduate Teaching School, which recognizes schools where faculty and administrators are committed to teaching undergraduate students in a high-quality manner.

The university is also included among the “A+ Schools for B Students” and “Best Colleges for Veterans.”

In a press release, Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said Stockton’s continued rise in the rankings is a tribute to the faculty, staff and students who make up the Stockton community. This year Stockton expanded its Student Success Services office and its Military and Veteran Services office and lounge. The new Atlantic City campus, which opened in fall 2018, is providing more opportunities for student learning and internships in the city.

“Stockton’s mission is, and will continue to be, to provide an affordable, high-quality education to a diverse population, enabling more college students to stay in New Jersey and more graduates to succeed in their chosen fields,” Kesselman said.
