The University of Georgia continues to rate highly among its peers. For the sixth year in a row, UGA is ranked in the top 20 public institutions in the nation. The university comes in at number 16 on the list of U.S. News and World Report’s 2022 list of America’s best public universities. 




Graduation and retention rates make up the biggest percentage of that ranking, which also includes academic credentials of students and faculty resources. 

UGA and the University of Florida are the only two public schools from the SEC to make the top 20.
