2021 Ranking of United States Universities

What are the most well-known universities in America? Topuniversitieslist attempts to address this issue by releasing the 2021 US University Ranking, which includes 1767 higher-education institutions in the United States that satisfy the Topuniversitieslist selection criteria:

being chartered, registered, or certified by the relevant US higher education-related institution, and providing at least four-year undergraduate degrees (bachelor degrees) or postgraduate degrees (master or doctoral degrees) in a conventional, face-to-face, non-distance education style.

The Topuniversitieslist League Table and University Ranking of 1767 Universities in the United States are available to use.
