This list was compiled based on data from the National Center for Education Statistics. Not all applicants who are accepted attend that school. Total cost covers tuition, fees, and room and board for the 2020-21 school year, unless otherwise noted. The undergraduate enrollment total is full-time undergraduates only for fall 2019. Grant or scholarship aid includes aid received from the federal government, state or local government, the institution and other sources known by the institution for the 2018-19 school year. Retention rates are for students who began studies in fall 2018 and returned fall 2019. The overall graduation rate tracks the progress of full-time students who began studies in fall 2013 to see if they complete a degree or other award such as a certificate within 150% of “normal time” for completing the program, typically six years. Community college statistics are for 2019-20.
