Kiplinger’s ranks the top 100 four-year schools that combine outstanding education with economic value. The journal factors in admission rates, percentage of students who return for their sophomore year, student-faculty ratio, and four-year graduation rate. The rankings also examine tuition and fees, financial aid offerings, and average student debt at graduation.
A university is only a good value if it provides a high-quality education. UT Austin currently ranks 27th in the world according to Times Higher Education and 26th in the world according to the Center for World University Rankings. We should take great pride in these assessments.
