BROCKPORT, NY—The College at Brockport, State University of New York, has been named one of the “Top 100 Best Values in Public Colleges” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. The list features public schools that deliver a quality education at an affordable price.
Brockport ranked No. 75 on the list and, according to Kiplinger’s, was selected due to its high four-year graduate rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid, a low sticker price, and great overall value.
“In trying economic times, delivering value to our students is of incredible importance,” says Brockport President John R. Halstead, PhD. “We’re honored that Kiplinger’s has again recognized the high quality of education that we provide at SUNY’s affordable tuition rate.”
This year, Kiplinger’s revamped its rankings to give more weight to academic value, such as the percentage of students who return for sophomore year and the four-year graduation rate.
“As states cut funding for higher education and tuition continues to climb, the world “value” becomes more significant than ever,” says Jane Bennett Clark, senior editor at Kiplinger’s. “This year’s top 100 public schools deliver strong academics at reasonable prices. We applaud these institutions for tightening their belts without compromising quality.”
The full list of schools is available online.
