For the second consecutive year, Washington Monthly ranks Golden Gate University America’s #1 School for Adult Learners in its annual College Guide and Rankings.
How GGU Was Chosen
To compile the rankings, Washington Monthly reviewed data from the Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) survey, the department’s new College Scorecard database and the College Board’s Annual Survey of Colleges.
The metrics that determined GGU’s rating include:
- ease of transfer/enrollment
- flexibility of programs
- services available for adult learners
- percent of adult students (age 25+)
- mean earnings of adult students ten years after entering college
- loan repayment of adult students five years after entering repayment
- tuition and fees for in-district students
