Special Report

America’s 25 Richest Universities

Methodology

Note: the IPEDS data for system-wide endowments (University of Texas System, The Texas A&M University System & Related Foundations, Regents of the University of California, etc.) uses the data for the flagship school in the system.

To identify America’s richest universities, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the endowment market value of American colleges, universities, and foundations for fiscal year 2020, provided by the National Association of College and University Business Officers. Net tuition prices and undergraduate enrollment for each university come from the National Center for Education Statistics and are for the most recent years available.
