Texas A&M University has been ranked No. 2 nationally on the list of Best Schools of 2017 by the educational website schools.com.

Texas A&M is the only Texas university to make the top 10 of schools.com’s rankings. The top ranking went to Utah State University.

Other top 10 schools include the University of Oklahoma, University of North Carolina, University of Utah, University of Florida, University of Maryland, Oklahoma State, North Carolina State and Utah Valley State.

Schools.com said it evaluated more than 1,600 colleges and ranked schools on 13 criteria, among them cost, scholarship aid, number of degree programs offered, debt of graduating students, student retention rates, student services offered and other factors.  It also used data collected by the U.S. Department of Education.

The site’s ranking of Texas A&M noted that “Texas A&M posted a graduation rate in our national top five and offered more online programs than all but two of our best colleges in the U.S. On top of that, it was one of the best national universities for veterans in 2017.”
