West Chester University

WEST CHESTER, PA — Nationally, West Chester University is among the top 100 best public universities and top 100 best value universities according to College Consensus’ newest 2020 rankings.

College Consensus’ methodology is to compile rankings from ForbesMoneyU.S. News, Wallethub, WSJ/Times Higher Education, and Washington Monthly.

The organization says they only utilize reputable student review sites that include an overall review score for each school.

These currently include Cappex, My Plan, Niche, Students Review, and Unigo. College Consensus provides an aggregate score based on all of a university’s rankings which, they argue, gives equal weight to the perspectives of both experts and real students.

WCU appears on the following lists at the ranking indicated.


#82 Best Public Colleges & Universities  – Nationwide
