*Methodology

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.

US News Rankings with Selected Majors: After clicking the source for the rankings above, database users may notice that US News lists ASC even higher on the database’s website. Out of an abundance of caution, this list shows how the college is ranked by US News within a range such as “Top 5” and not a specific ranking number. This range represents all ranked schools offering the program, since US News does not calculate their college rankings across multiple regional and institutional categories.
