For the third consecutive year, Washington Monthly has ranked Golden Gate University America’s #1 School for Adult Learners in its annual College Guide and Rankings.

How Golden Gate University Was Chosen

The metrics that determined GGU’s rating include:

  • services available for adult learners
  • percent of adult students (age 25+)
  • ease of transfer/enrollment
  • flexibility of programs
  • mean earnings of adult students ten years after entering college
  • loan repayment of adult students five years after entering repayment
