According to the just-released 2013 U.S. News & World Report, Farmingdale is ranked as one of the best regional colleges in the north (#31) which includes both public and private colleges. The College was ranked #39 last year. When compared to public colleges in the north region, Farmingdale ranked #8. Farmingdale is the only ranked Long Island college listed in these categories.
In addition Farmingdale is the only SUNY school (and the only LI school listed) listed in the LEAST debt category in the section titled Student Debt Load at Graduation for regional colleges in the north.
With sustained increases in applications and enrollment in both first time and transfer students, Farmingdale State College will end its 100th anniversary with plenty to celebrate.
