*Methodology and Ranking Sources

*CIP Code: The Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) is defined by the National Center for Educational Statistics (NCES). There may be multiple CIP codes within a field of study to further differentiate specific programs.                        

Rankings versus Reviews or Recommended Schools

Alfred State monitors how objective sources rank the performance of universities and colleges nationwide, and we are proud of how well we rank. Students should be aware that there are two other categories of online search engines. Some databases are purely based on reviews and while these opinions may be valuable, scores are based on participation and may be skewed. Also, consumers should always be cautious accepting advice from an online source that only returns search results based on universities and colleges paying to participate. Advertising should be clearly marked to differentiate it from objective rankings.
