Truman Ranked Ninth Best Value College in the Nation

In the latest Princeton Review book, “The Best Value Colleges: The 150 Best-Buy Schools and What It Takes to Get In,” Truman is recognized as the ninth best value public college in the nation.

Further recognition of that ninth place ranking was listed in the Jan. 28 print edition of the USA Today, who has partnered with the Princeton Review on this project since 2009.

Of the public universities listed in the top 10, Truman has the lowest tuition for out-of-state students at $12,968.
The Princeton Review list consists of 75 public and 75 private universities. Findings are based on an analysis of admissions, tuition and financial aid data for about 650 colleges in the 2012-13 school year. The company says the 150 colleges on its 2014 Best Value list “do an exceptional job helping bright students earn a degree without going broke.”

Only the top 10 public and private universities are listed in the USA Today Jan. 28 print edition. The top 10 public schools, in order, are: The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill; New College of Florida; University of Virginia; North Carolina State University; University of Michigan-Ann Arbor; University of California-Los Angeles; University of Florida; College of William and Mary; Truman State University; and SUNY-Binghamton.
