Coppin Ranked #4 HBCU in the Nation

Coppin Ranked among best HBCUs in the Nation. Published Monday, May 11th, 2020

For the second time in as many weeks, Coppin State University (CSU) has been ranked among the best in the nation, by a college ranking website.

This time CSU has been ranked fourth on the list of best Historically Black College or Universities (HBCU) in the nation for 2020 by College Consensus (, a unique college ranking website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews.

“We are extremely proud and gratified that the hard work of Coppin State University’s faculty, staff, and students is being recognized through this ranking,” said Dr. Mickey L. Burnim, CSU interim president.  “It is also powerful confirmation that our university is a leader in offering great opportunities through higher education.”

Just one week prior, CSU was ranked by College Consensus 17th among best value colleges and universities in the nation.

The website reviews rankings from Forbes, Money, U.S. News and World Report, The Wall Street Journal, Wallethub and Washington Monthly. Then the website averaged student review scores from such websites as Cappex, Niche, Student Review and more to assess a student review rating.  College Consensus then combines the data factoring in tuition costs to develop rankings. 

By combining the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web, College Consensus says it provides the most accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school's reputation and quality available anywhere.
