The College at Brockport, State University of New York, was ranked for the fourth consecutive year among Kiplinger’s “100 Best Values in Public Colleges,” a list released today that ranks schools based on a combination of top-flight academics and affordable costs.
The College at Brockport ranked 63rd, and was one of 11 SUNY schools to make the list.
"We're proud that The College at Brockport was once again acknowledged by Kiplinger’s," said College President John R. Halstead, PhD. "Receiving this national recognition highlights the outstanding value and quality of our students' educational experience."
Selected from a pool of more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities, schools in the Kiplinger 100 were ranked according to academic quality, including admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios and four- and six-year graduation rates, as well as on cost and financial aid.
“Despite rising tuition costs, there are still many first-rate institutions providing outstanding academics at an affordable price,” said Janet Bodnar, editor of Kiplinger’s. “Schools like these on the Kiplinger 100 list prove graduates can enter the workforce with a great education—and without a huge cloud of debt.”
More methodology specifics are available at: www.kiplinger.com/tools/colleges. Web visitors will find special interactive features including a reader’s choice poll, a slideshow of the top 10 schools, and data sortable by criteria such as state, tuition cost, average debt, student/faculty ratio, and admission rate. Parents and college-bound students can dive into dozens of quality and affordability measures for each of the 100 schools on the list.
