RIT ranked a ‘Best Value College for 2020’
Only 7 percent of four-year colleges qualify for annual Princeton Review list
Rochester Institute of Technology has been named among “Best Value Colleges for 2020” by The Princeton Review.
The project analyzes 40 data points for more than 650 of the nation’s 4,000 colleges and universities. Only 200 made the final list. Topics covered include academics, cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt and alumni support. Princeton Review also used data from its surveys of students attending the colleges and PayScale.com surveys of alumni regarding their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction.
“The schools we chose as our Best Value Colleges for 2020 comprise only 7% of the nation’s four-year colleges,” noted Robert Franek, The Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief. “They are truly distinctive and diverse in their programs, size, region, and type, yet they are similar in three areas. Every school we selected offers outstanding academics, generous financial aid and/or relative low cost of attendance, and stellar career services. We recommend them highly to college applicants and parents seeking schools that are academically top-notch and committed to making their programs affordable. These colleges are also standouts at guiding their students to rewarding futures.”
