Keystone ranked in top tier of U.S. News & World Report “Best Colleges”

Sep 12, 2022

For the 16th consecutive year, Keystone College has been ranked as one of the nation’s best colleges in U.S. News & World Report.

Keystone finished 20th overall in the Regional Colleges/North category. In other key listings, Keystone was also ranked in the Regional Colleges/North category in Social Mobility and in the Best Colleges for Veterans category.     

The social mobility category measures the extent that schools enroll and graduate low-income students as defined by students who receive federal Pell grants. Essentially, the ranking demonstrates that Keystone provides opportunity, support, and personal attention for all students to be successful, regardless of economic circumstances and background.

“We are again extremely honored to be ranked in U.S. News & World Report as one of the nation’s best colleges. In addition, our excellent ranking for social mobility continues to demonstrate our strong commitment to students from a wide range of social and economic circumstances by providing resources, individual attention, and guidance needed for a successful college career. Keystone’s ranking as one of the Best Colleges for Veterans is especially meaningful as it demonstrates our strong and ongoing commitment to our nation’s veterans.”
