EDsmart.org, a nationally recognized publisher of college resources and rankings, has released the 2019-2020 edition of the Best Liberal Arts Colleges & Universities.

Draper, UT -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/10/2019 -- EDsmart's ranking of the best liberal arts colleges & universities is the most comprehensive and well-rounded to date. The ranking includes only fully accredited schools. Rankings are based primarily on affordability, while also considering factors such as graduation and retention rates and post-graduation salaries according to NCES College Navigator reporting and post-attendance salaries according to College Scorecard.

"It is important to recognize the colleges and universities that go above and beyond," said Tyson Stevens, managing editor of EDsmart. "Our goal is to highlight these schools and their commitment to higher education."

"The Best Colleges rankings allow students to compare accredited programs and find those that best fit their education interests and career goals," said EDsmart's spokesperson. "Beyond providing affordable education, a college is not successful if it does not graduate its students, which is why EDsmart rankings place a high value on outcomes, including graduation and retention rates, and post-graduation salaries."

The EDsmart 2020 ranking for the Best Liberal Arts Colleges & Universities ranks Carleton College #1 as the best liberal arts college with College of the Holy Cross and Wesleyan University following.

The complete alphabetical rankings are as follows:

Albion College
Carleton College
College of the Holy Cross
Hope College
Mount Holyoke College

University and student response to EDsmart rankings has been very positive. Sharing the rankings on their websites and via social media has helped schools attract new students and excite existing students and alumni.

The rankings and data were produced for EDsmart, a leading higher education research organization. All evaluated data was gathered from IPEDs, U.S. Department of Higher Education, College Scorecard, school websites, and other reputable sources.
