Elizabeth City State University Earns Top Rankings
U.S. News and World Report rank
Between 1999 and 2014, ECSU repeatedly earned national acclaim in U.S. News and World Report Magazine's ranking of "Best Colleges." U.S. News and World Report's 2014 edition of "Best Colleges" ranked ECSU #1 among Top Public Schools (Regional Colleges /South).) The publication also ranked ECSU #18 among the nation's Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
Washington Monthly rank
For the second consecutive year, Washington Monthly ranked Elizabeth City State University No. 1 among baccalaureate colleges in the publication's annual college guide. The rankings, listed in the September-October 2013 edition, are based on evaluations of 350 institutions in the category.
The rankings "give high marks to institutions that enroll low-income students, help them graduate and don't charge them an arm and a leg to attend. Universities that bring in research dollars are rewarded by [our] standards, as are those whose undergraduates go on to earn Ph.Ds.," the editors wrote.
