Lewis University One of Best Colleges for Transfer Students

Published: January 3, 2019.

Lewis University has been named one of Money Magazine’s Best Colleges in America for Transfer Students for 2018-19. Lewis is in the top 50 percent of the ranked schools and is ranked the second best private, mid-sized university in Illinois.

According to Money, more than one-third of freshmen will switch colleges at least once while working toward a degree. At the top 50 colleges selected, transfer students do as well as—and often better than—their peers on campus. To find the best, Money weighed a college’s transfer student enrollment and its graduation rate for transfer students.

College is now the second-largest financial expenditure for many families, exceeded only by the purchase of a home, therefore Money analyzed graduation rates, tuition charges, family borrowing, and alumni earnings (plus 22 other data points) to find the country’s top values.

“Lewis University offers students the best combination of price and quality with the assurance that their degree will have real-world value on the job market,” stated Ray Kennelly, vice president for Enrollment Management.

Lewis University is an innovative and forward-thinking Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,500 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected and socially responsible graduates.
