Ramapo College is one of the best colleges in America, according to the 2023 Best Colleges in America list published annually by Money Magazine.

Offering exceptional value with below average in-state and out-of-state tuition rates, coupled with an above average four-year graduation rate, the quality of a Ramapo College education is no secret. U.S. News & World Report named Ramapo a top institution on its Best Regional Universities North list for 2022-2023. Ramapo holds the #1 public college in New Jersey spot, according to College Choice. Ramapo College consistently provides a high-quality education with a strong return on investment.
