The top five institutions in the rankings are ranked among the top ten universities in the country for graduation rates, the percentage of students with bachelor’s degrees and associate’s degrees, and student retention, according a report by UH and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).
The rankings also include information about enrollment, graduation rates for students with the same degree level, student retention rates, and retention rates for incoming students.

A ranking is based on a survey of 1,800 faculty, staff, and students.
This study was conducted by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) with support from the National Science Foundation.
The survey methodology was approved by the APLU, which has a long-standing tradition of independent, non-partisan academic and research research journalism.
The NAIC, ACE, and APLU independently produced the rankings, as well as providing additional input on the survey methodology.
This is the first study to include a detailed look at the state of Hawai’s campus system, as it compares the state to other states in the region and in the United States.
The findings in this report are based on the most recent data available and represent only the states ranked in each respective category.
The results of the report were released today.
