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 eighth time, Wagner College appeared on the Forbes magazine's America’s Top Colleges list, which includes less than 25% of American schools. The list “only rank[s] a slice of America’s colleges and universities, just 600 four-year schools drawn from the nearly 2,700 such degree-granting institutions in the U.S.”
Wagner College was named one of America’s best colleges in the 2022 edition of the Princeton Review’s “Best 387 Colleges” guide. Special kudos went to the Wagner College Theatre program, which was included on the roster of Great College Theaters.
