About the NCSA Power Rankings
NCSA Power Rankings recognize the “Best Schools for Student-Athletes.” Unlike traditional power rankings that evaluate schools solely on athletic performance, NCSA Power Rankings include the college desirability among current student-athletes, academic performance and affordability, to help families find the right college fit.
Since 2010, NCSA Power Rankings have recognized the Best Schools in the U.S. for Student-Athletes, evaluating colleges and universities on criteria that matters most to student-athletes and providing a valuable tool to families researching potential schools.
About Our Methodology
The 2019 NCSA Power Rankings are based on proprietary analysis using 2019 U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges, 2017 IPEDS graduation rates, 2017 IPEDS institutional net cost – or average cost after aid – and “NCSA Favorites” which identifies the most desirable schools according to current high school student-athletes on the NCSA platform.
