UE Named Best-Value College and a Top 100 Private University by Kiplinger’s
Posted: Friday, December 18, 2015
The University of Evansville has once again been named to Kiplinger’s Best College Value List for private universities, liberal arts colleges and public colleges, and as one of its Top 100 Private Universities. UE and the other schools on the 2015 lists represent colleges that provide high-quality academics at a reasonable cost.
To create the best value list, Kiplinger’s considers data from nearly 1,200 public and private four-year schools that is provided by Peterson’s. Kiplinger’s adds its own reporting data, and then narrows the list based on measures of academic quality. Each school is then ranked. Quality criteria account for 55% of total points, and cost criteria account for 45%. Factors considered include: competitiveness, graduation rates, academic support, cost and financial aid and student indebtedness.
“We’re honored to receive national recognition from Kiplinger’s for our efforts to make an education at UE of the highest quality without sacrificing accessibility and affordability,” said UE President Thomas A. Kazee. “Our recent launching of the UE Guarantee is a part of those efforts.”
The UE Guarantee is an assurance that students at the University of Evansville will graduate in four years, be taught in small classes by professors dedicated to undergraduate education, have the opportunity to study abroad and get an internship, and be awarded substantial financial aid.
