Forbes has released its list of America's top colleges, and three New Jersey institutions fared well in the rankings.

Princeton University finished fourth on the list, trailing only Williams College in Massachusetts; Stanford University in California; and Swarthmore College in Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, both The College of New Jersey and Rutgers University cracked the top 200, ranking 168th and 177th, respectively.

Other New Jersey colleges that made the list of 650 schools were:

  • Stevens Institute of Technology, 303rd
  • Drew University, 329th
  • Seton Hall University, 331st
  • New Jersey Institute of Technology, 416th
  • Fairleigh Dickinson University (Metropolitan Campus), 489th
  • Rowan University, 504th
  • Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, 509th
  • Montclair State University, 514th
  • Rider University, 527th

This was the seventh year Forbes ranked America’s colleges in conjunction with the Center for College Affordability and Productivity. The survey factored in student satisfaction; post-graduate success; student debt; graduation rate; and academic success.
