An esteemed San Antonio university is once again at the top of the class. Personal finance website WalletHub has added to Trinity University’s accolades with a No. 3 ranking in Texas and a No. 61 ranking nationally among 2022’s best colleges and universities.

To determine the top-performing schools, WalletHub compared more than 1,000 institutions in the U.S. across 30 key measures, including student-to-faculty ratio, graduation rate, and post-school median salary.

In Texas, Trinity ranks No. 3 for admission rate and student-faculty ratio, No. 5 for post-school median salary, No. 6 for graduation rate, and No. 21 for gender and racial diversity. Not every ranking is that stellar, though. It comes in at 52nd for on-campus crime and 51st for net cost among 55 Texas schools.

Joining Trinity as the top schools in Texas, according to WalletHub, are the following institutions:

  1. Rice University (No. 6 nationally)
  2. University of Texas at Austin (No. 45 nationally)
  3. Trinity University in San Antonio (No. 61 nationally)
