Anderson University has been ranked with in the top tier in the Midwestern Universities-Master’s category by U.S News and World Report. The magazine's 2002 guide to “America’s Best Colleges” marks the first year that Anderson University has appeared in the Universities-Master’s category. This specific category reflects the schools’ mission: providing a full range of undergraduate and master's-level programs as well as some doctoral programs.

US News and World Report organizes colleges and universities by category, then ranks schools within each group. Rankings are based on a wide range of criteria, including academic reputation, graduation and retention rates, faculty resources, student selectivity, financial aid resources and alumni giving to name a few.

Anderson University has consistently fared well in the annual US News & World Report rankings. In the 2000 edition of “America’s Best Colleges,” Anderson University was included in the lead story of the publication regarding positive student reaction to the school’s Web site.

All the US News rankings appeared on the magazine’s web site earlier this fall. College-bound students can use the site to search for colleges according to their own interests, fill out interactive worksheets, and search for scholarship and financial aid information.
