Annual Reports

2019-2020 U.S. News & World Report

The 2019-2020 US News and World Report Best Colleges report show that Loyola University Chicago’s ranking in the National Universities list went from 89 last year to 104 this year.  This change was predicted since last year’s increase (from 103 in 2017-2018) was fueled by an anomalously high six year graduation rate.  This past year, our graduation rate was more typical of the recent trend.  Additionally, US News added 80 schools to the National Universities list, so the change from last year was anticipated.  Read more about the full report.
