Purchase College, State University of New York (SUNY) has been named a 2018 Best College Value by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
Introduced in 1998, the rankings highlight public schools, private universities, and private liberal arts colleges that combine outstanding academics with affordable cost. Purchase College is listed in the top 100 best values among public colleges.
Kiplinger assesses value by measurable standards of academic quality and affordability. Quality measures include admission rate, percentage of students who return for sophomore year, student-faculty ratio, and four-year graduation rate.
Cost criteria include sticker price, financial aid, and average debt at graduation.
“Our rankings, which weigh affordability alongside academic quality, are a great resource for students and their parents when sorting through college choices,” said Mark Solheim, editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine.
“We start with a universe of nearly 1,200 schools and trim the list using measures of academic quality. We then rank the schools based on cost and financial aid data. All 300 schools on our list are worth a look.”
The complete rankings are available at kiplinger.com/links/colleges and will appear in print in the February 2018 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
