“The latest U.S. News rankings continue to demonstrate that UD is an affordable, top-tier Catholic institution that provides a ‘best value’ educational experience to position our graduates for impact and success,” said Jason Reinoehl, vice president for enrollment management at UD.

The university was also considered an “A+ school for B students” meaning UD accepted a number of non-A students while still being ranked among the top three quarters of its peer institutions, according to U.S. News.

Several factors helped UD achieve its rankings on the U.S. News list, said Robert Morse, chief data strategist at U.S. News.
