WalletHub, a personal finance website, has just released its rankings of 2018’s Best Colleges and Universities nationwide and in each state. The site also released separate rankings for colleges and universities respectively.

State lists are based on 26 metrics like cost, campus safety, faculty resources, campus experience, career outcomes and student-faculty ratio. Here’s how New Jersey institutions stacked up:

  1. Princeton University

  2. Stevens Institute of Technology

  3. College of New Jersey

  4. New Jersey Institute of Technology

  5. Ramapo College of New Jersey

  6. Seton Hall University

  7. Stockton University

  8. Saint Peter’s University

  9. Centenary University

  10. Rider University

Princeton, the only NJ school in the Ivy League, ranked best for admission rate (as in it’s the most selective), student-faculty ratio and graduation rate. Additionally, it ranked second for post-attendance median salary and 4th for gender and racial diversity.

While Princeton is the top NJ college overall, Stevens topped it with a 1st-place ranking in post-attendance median salary. Furthermore, TCNJ topped Stevens with the 2nd best graduation rate, and ranked above both Stevens and Princeton with 11th best net cost. On the national list, Princeton was beat out only by  MIT in the overall survey of both colleges and universities.
