UMD Maintains Top 10 Spot as a Best Value Public College

For the ninth consecutive year, the University of Maryland has ranked in the top 10 among public universities for in-state value in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of the Best College Values. UMD ranks No. 8 for in-state and No. 10 for out-of-state value.  In addition, UMD ranks No. 2 for in-state value among Big Ten public universities.

Each year, Kiplinger assesses the best value colleges by measurable standards of academic quality and affordability. Quality measures include the admission rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include sticker price, financial aid and average debt at graduation.

The complete 2017 rankings are now available online at Kiplinger.com/links/college and will appear in print in the February 2017 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, on newsstands January 3, 2017.
