U.S. News & World Report has ranked Regis College among the top 50 Best Regional Universities in the North Region, top 40 Performers for Social Mobility, and top 50 Best Colleges for Veterans. Serving as a guide for prospective students and their families, the rankings evaluate 1,500 colleges and universities using up to 19 measures of academic quality. According to U.S. News, this year's rankings placed a greater emphasis on social mobility and outcomes for graduating college students.
Regis advanced 40 positions in the Best Universities in the North Region as compared to last year’s ranking.
The social mobility ranking measures the extent colleges enrolled and graduated students who received federal Pell grants. Fifty-five percent of Regis’ new undergraduate class consists of first-generation students and 100 percent of incoming first-year students received a merit scholarship or need-based aid.
