SUNY Geneseo has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of the Top 300 Best College Values for 2018, ranking 120th on the comprehensive list of public and private colleges.
Geneseo also ranks 26th on the list of 100 best public colleges for out-of-state students and 53rd among public colleges for in-state students. Introduced in 1998, the rankings now combine public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges into a single comprehensive list.
Kiplinger bases its ranking on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability. The editors start with data from nearly 1,200 public and private four-year schools and narrows the list to the top schools based on measures of academic quality (including SAT or ACT scores), admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios and four-year graduation rates. The schools are then ranked using cost and financial aid measures.
The complete rankings are now available online and will appear in print in the February 2018 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, on newsstands January 9.
