Truman Recognized By Kiplinger’s Personal Finance Magazine

The February 2006 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine lists Truman State University as 23rd on its exclusive survey list of 100 best values in public colleges that are academically strong as well as affordable. The magazine also ranks Truman as the eighth best educational value for out-of-state students.

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance based its rankings on several measures of academic quality, such as ACT or SAT test scores, admission rates, freshman retention rates, student-faculty ratios, four- and six-year graduation rates. They also ranked each school based on cost and financial aid factors. In addition to doing their own reporting, Kiplinger’s used data provided by more than 500 public, four-year colleges and universities to Peterson’s, a division of the Thomson Corporation.
