These rankings were developed to help students to identify college and universities of a particular religious denomination.
The colleges in the rankings are ranked by the same criteria as our Quality Rankings, but are filtered by the religious affiliation of the school as reported to IPEDs. This ranking does not include any additional measures, it is simply a ranking of the school's overall quality.
Religious affiliation is determined when the school reports its information to IPEDs. If you cannot find a school listed under a particular denomination it may be because the school has reported itself under a different denomination or the school has failed to report this piece of data. Failure to report information does not impact the school's quality, it just means it may not show up in our ranking.
