Accolades

  
Wagner College was one of only 50 colleges throughout the country that was included in a highly exclusive new guide to best-value schools published by Princeton Review, “Colleges That Create Futures: 50 Schools That Launch Careers by Going Beyond the Classroom”
The New York Times ranked Wagner College #6 on a list of the highest “value added” colleges in the nation. "Common Sense" columnist James B. Stewart worked with Brookings Institution fellow Jonathan Rockwell on a scale measuring the value added by a college to what its students bring with them to campus.

For the seventh year in a row, Wagner College appears on the Forbes magazine's 2019 America’s Top Colleges list. “These 650 count as the best in country,” say Forbes editors. “We include just 15% of the 4,300 degree-granting postsecondary institutions in the U.S., so appearing here … is an indication that a school meets a high standard.”
Wagner College was named one of America’s best colleges in the 2021 edition of the Princeton Review’s “Best 386 Colleges” guide. Special kudos went to the Wagner College Theater program, which was ranked Number 3 in the nation.
