In the third annual College Access Index published by The New York Times, UC Santa Barbara has ranked No. 2 for its commitment to economic diversity. The ranking is based on a combination of the number of lower- and middle-income students a college or university enrolls and the tuition it charges these students.
According to the Times, the index is based on the share of students receiving Pell grants; the graduation rate of students on Pell grants; and the net cost, after financial aid, that a college or university charged low- and middle-income students. The index, as the Times noted, “is a measure of which top institutions are doing the most to promote the American dream.”
