Since the first list in 1983, Best Colleges has been America’s essential college rankings resource. Schools are broken down into major categories such as National Universities, Regional Universities, Liberal Arts Colleges and Regional Colleges. There are also smaller, more focused classifications, like Best Value Schools and Up-and-Coming Schools.

In addition to the rankings, Best Colleges 2013 will also contain articles on a variety of subjects important to college students. Past topics have included how to sell yourself to admissions officers, keys to surviving on campus and tips about managing student loans. The methodology behind how colleges receive their ranks is also included.

According to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, holding an associate’s or bachelor’s degree can significantly increase your income and decrease your chances of unemployment. In 2011, those who held only a high school diploma earned a median weekly salary of $638 and saw a 9.4% unemployment rate. But associate’s degree holders brought home an average of $768 per week and experienced just 6.8% unemployment. For workers who held a bachelor’s degree, the numbers were even better – a $1,053 weekly income and only 4.9% unemployment. Clearly, earning a college degree can pay off!

Best Colleges 2013 is the go-to resource for anyone considering an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
