What are the NCSA College Power Rankings

Since 2010, the NCSA College Power Rankings have calculated the rankings of all U.S. universities and colleges through a proprietary methodology using results from U.S. News & World Report, the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup, and student-athlete graduation rates. These three factors to determine combined athletic and academic standards of the schools. Rankings are calculated as an overall ranking and broken out by division and geographic region. NCSA Power Rankings provide a unique look from an athletic and academic perspective to give parents and student-athletes a valuable tool when searching colleges and universities.

“We created our annual NCSA College Power Rankings to help families find the best colleges around, based on both athletic competitiveness and academic excellence," said Lisa Strasman, NCSA President. "The NCSA College Power Rankings are just one small part of our overall efforts to help empower young leaders through sport, and helping them find the right match for their education.”
