Kiplinger's Ranks WCU among the 100 Best Values in Public Universities

For the ninth consecutive year, West Chester University has been named one of the "100 Best Values in Public Colleges" by Kiplinger's Personal Finance. In addition, the publication as included the University among its 24 "Best College Values Under $30,000 a Year."

Kiplinger's collects data from 1,200 public and private four-year institutions and determines the top 100 by analyzing several measurable standards, such as academic quality –including SAT or ACT scores, admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios, and four- year graduation rates – financial aid, cost, and average student debt at graduation.

The annual public university and college rankings appear in Kiplinger's February 2015 issue and can be read online at 2015 Kiplinger's Best College Values and Best College Values Under $30,000/Year.
