MNU Ranked In Best Colleges by US News & World Report

University News

MNU is proud to be among the 162 ranked Best Regional Midwest Universities on U.S. News & World Report's list. The publisher considers six main aspects of each institution when making the list. 

  • Outcomes
  • Faculty Resources
  • Expert Opinion
  • Financial Resources
  • Student Excellence
  • Alumni Giving

The publication’s ranking methodology places a heavy emphasis on outcomes such as retention and graduation rates, followed by academic reputation. Specifically, this ranking pertains to the university’s traditional undergraduate programs, which this year unveiled the Pioneer Pledge, a loan repayment assistance program. New freshmen and transfer students are eligible under Pioneer Pledge to receive assistance repaying their loans if their income is under $43,000 upon graduation from MNU. This gives students a safety net when considering taking a loan to help pay for their education. 

This is the third year in a row that MNU has been selected for the list. MNU is also a ranked university on Money Magazine's 2019-20 Best Colleges
