    WalletHub’s Top 10 Colleges & Universities in California

    With the first “early decision” college-application deadline looming on Nov. 1 and tuition costs having more than doubled since the 1980s, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its 2020’s Best College & University Rankings as well as accompanying videos, in addition to separate rankings for colleges and for universities.

    To help college-bound seniors choose the best schools within their states, WalletHub compared over 1,000 higher-education institutions in the U.S. based on 33 key measures grouped into seven categories, such as Student Selectivity, Cost & Financing and Career Outcomes. The data set ranges from student-faculty ratio to graduation rate to post-attendance median salary.

    Top 10 Colleges & Universities in California

    1. Stanford University
    2. California Institute of Technology
    3. University of California-Los Angeles
    4. University of California-Berkeley
    5. Harvey Mudd College

    7. University of California-San Diego
    8. Claremont McKenna College
    9. University of California-Irvine
