UMD Among Kiplinger's Top 10 Best Values for Sixth Consecutive Year

For the sixth consecutive year, the University of Maryland has ranked in the top 10 in Kiplinger's Personal Finance's annual ranking of the Best Values in Public Colleges. UMD took the 7th spot on the list for in-state tuition and 14th for out-of-state.

Each year, Kiplinger’s collects data from hundreds of public four-year institutions and determines the top 100 by analyzing several measurable standards, such as academic quality – including SAT or ACT scores, admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios, and four- year graduation rates – financial aid, cost, and average student debt at graduation.

"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. "This year’s top 100 schools have made admirable strides to maintain academic integrity and standards while meeting the financial needs of their students."
