OSU education rated a good value

Oklahoma State University has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance 300 Best College Values for 2018.

Introduced in 1998, the rankings now combine public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges into a single, comprehensive list.

Kiplinger also ranks the 100 best values in each category.

The analysis is based on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability, not subjective criteria.

The school earned the No. 81 spot on the magazine’s list of 100 best values in public colleges and No. 262 in best value among all colleges.

The full rankings will appear in print in the February 2018 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.

“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.”
