A Best Value


Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has named SUNY Oneonta to its list of “100 Best Values in Public Colleges” for the ninth consecutive year. The 2015 rankings, released Dec. 17, recognize four-year schools that deliver academic quality and affordability.

To assess quality, Kiplinger’s uses a number of measurable standards, including the admissions rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and the four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include low tuition, abundant financial aid and low average debt at graduation.

The annual list of “100 Best Values in Public Colleges” is available online.
