Top 100 Best Values in Public Colleges Captures 9 SUNY Campuses

Top 100 Best Value Public Colleges 2014

Nine SUNY schools are nationally ranked among the best values in public colleges in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance‘s 2014 list of 100 Best Values in Public Colleges.  Most notably, Binghamton University, SUNY Geneseo, and Stony Brook University are ranked in the top 33% of the list. The rankings are in part based on cost, retention, student-to-faculty ratio, and the graduation rate.

“SUNY is proud to once again see so many of its campuses ranked favorably by Kiplinger’s for the top educational value they offer students in New York and around the globe,” said Chancellor Zimpher. “Congratulations to all nine campuses on this much-deserved recognition, which is a reflection of our commitments to access, quality, and affordability.”

The strong SUNY presence in this national rankings list verges a year of leadership for the State University of New York. From President Obama visiting both the University at Buffalo and Binghamton University, presenting SUNY as a national model of value and excellence, to campuses being highly ranked by others, the illumination of SUNY’s world-class education has never been brighter.

 


 

“The college landscape today is very different—tuition increases and student debt dominate the national conversation surrounding higher education,” said Janet Bodnar, editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. “This year’s top 100 schools have made admirable strides to maintain academic integrity and standards while meeting the financial needs of their students.”

Kiplinger’s assesses quality according to a number of measurable standards, including the admission rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and the four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include low sticker prices, abundant financial aid and low average debt at graduation.

SUNY campuses in Kiplinger’s Top 100 Values in Public Colleges for 2014:

15. Binghamton University
20. SUNY Geneseo
29. Stony Brook University
49. SUNY New Paltz
51. University at Buffalo
