aint Vincent College’s admission website was ranked #1 in the country by MyCollegeOptions.org in its 11th annual Enrollment Power Index, an analysis of admission websites of all four-year colleges and universities.

The study grades over 3,000 institutions on a 100-point scale, including functionality, design and technology components. The criteria for the study are reviewed and updated

annually by internal experts as well as current high school students. Each institution was reviewed by more than 1,000 college-bound high school students.
