* UE Named Best Value College and Top 100 Best Value Private University by Kiplinger

The University of Evansville has again been named to Kiplinger’s Best College Value List and as a Top 100 Best Value Private University. UE and the other schools on the 2018 lists represent colleges that provide high-quality academics at a reasonable cost.

Kiplinger’s ranking system weighs affordability alongside academic quality, and combines public schools, private universities, and private liberal arts colleges into a single, comprehensive list. Kiplinger ranks the 100 best values in each category, based on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability, not subjective criteria. To create its best value list, Kiplinger considers data from nearly 1,200 public and private four-year schools provided by Peterson’s, the leader in college data licensing. The list is narrowed to top schools based on academic quality, including SAT or ACT scores, admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios, and four-year graduation rates. The schools are then ranked using cost and financial aid measures, with academic quality carrying more weight than costs.

“The University of Evansville is very proud to be listed as a Kiplinger Best Value, and we’re particularly pleased to have moved up 39 spots among colleges overall this year,” said Shane Davidson, vice president for enrollment and marketing at UE. “This national recognition is an affirmation of the University’s continued commitment to providing students with an affordable, high quality education.”

The full lists of Kiplinger’s Best College Value Schools are available online now on Kiplinger’s website.
