"University of Michigan tops the list, followed by University of Southern California and Northeastern University."

College Choice (www.collegechoice.net) has published its annual ranking of best disability friendly colleges and universities. The ranking can be viewed in full at www.collegechoice.net/50-best-disability-friendly-colleges-and-universities/

Coby Cagle, Associate Editor of the ranking says, "The vast majority of universities in the united states simply meet the minimum accessibility standards set by the government. The schools on this list, however, are some of the best in the country at committing resources and funding to equip their students with the tools they need thrive."

The College Choice 2016 Ranking of the Best Disability Friendly Colleges and Universities takes into account several key factors to ensure students looking for schools with exceptional support for students of all abilities will get the best rate of return on their educational investment. We began with a list of schools that far exceed the minimum legal requirements for accessibility. That list was then evaluated and ranked based on factors like academic reputation, student satisfaction, affordability, average financial aid award, and average salary of recent graduates.

"With this ranking we highlight the universities and colleges that devote an abundant amount of resources to ensure that students of all abilities have equal access to a high-quality education," said Christian Amondson, Managing Editor of College Choice.

University of Michigan tops the list, followed by University of Southern California and Northeastern University.
