Forbes Ranks La Salle One of America’s Best Value Colleges
La Salle University has been ranked one of 300 colleges and universities recognized by Forbes as an “America’s Best Value College” for 2016. According to Forbes, La Salle is a school that is “worth the investment.”
The rankings are the result of a partnership with Forbes and The Center for College Affordability and Productivity, taking into consideration educational quality, graduation rate, post-graduate earnings, and tuition.
The Forbes best ranking is the latest accolade for La Salle regarding value. In its current list, The Economist ranked the University among the top 100 for value, and Money Magazine named La Salle a “Value All Star,” and one of the top five colleges in the Philadelphia region for educational quality, affordability, and alumni earnings.
La Salle’s “America’s Best Value College” ranking follows a recent announcement from President Colleen Hanycz, Ph.D., reporting the University would freeze fulltime undergraduate tuition for the next academic year. “We appreciate and share our students’ concerns about the cost of a college education, and continue our efforts to contain costs without sacrificing educational quality and student success,” Hanycz said.
The list of 2016 “America’s Best Value Colleges” is available on Forbes’ website.
