Utica College Again Ranked Among "Top Performers on Social Mobility"
Utica College ranked #30 by U.S. News & World Report
Utica College has once again been named to U.S. News & World Report’s prestigious list of “Top Performers on Social Mobility.”
Social Mobility is the movement from one socioeconomic level to another.
Economically disadvantaged students are less likely to complete college and earn a degree, but, according to U.S. News & World Report, some colleges are more successful at advancing the social mobility of their students.
Utica College enrolls and graduates large proportions of disadvantaged students who receive federal Pell Grants. The vast majority of these grants are awarded to students whose adjusted gross family incomes are under $50,000. More than 95% of UC students receive some form of financial aid through the college.
On the list of more than 170 schools, UC is ranked #30.
Utica College has a long history of serving first-generation college students; the college was founded in 1946 to assist veterans returning from World War II.
