The rankings scandal at Temple University spread beyond the Fox School of Business on Friday after officials announced that reports from two other schools submitted to U.S. News and World Report also included errors, though the online rankings site said the errors did not affect its graduate school rankings.
University officials identified incorrect data from the College of Education and the Lewis Katz School of Medicine that were collected for U.S. News’ graduate program rankings for 2019. The rest of the data from the two schools were verified, the university said. All data from the College of Engineering and the Beasley School of Law were verified.
The education school underreported the number of students receiving grants and or scholarships, mistakenly included students graduating from Temple’s Japan campus in its graduating class of master’s students, and entered the amount of fees as per credit rather than per semester.
