John Carroll University has been named to the Kiplinger’s Personal Finance list of the 400 Best College Values for 2019. John Carroll earned the 153rd spot on the magazine’s list of best values and the 48th spot among private colleges and universities.
Introduced in 1998, the rankings now combine public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges into a single, comprehensive list. Kiplinger also ranks the best values in each category. The analysis is based on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability. The full rankings are now available online and will appear in print in the September 2019 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, on newsstands August 13.
“Our rankings—which weigh affordability alongside academic quality—are designed to help families see how their full array of college options stack up,” said Kaitlin Pitsker, associate editor, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. “We start with a universe of nearly 1,200 schools, then trim the list based on measures of academic quality, cost and financial aid data. This year’s list features recurring winners, as well as rising stars and new additions, all of which are worth a look.”
At Kiplinger.com, visitors have access to the “Find the Best College For You” tool and other resources that let readers sort by admission rate, average debt at graduation and other criteria for all schools, plus in-state and out-of-state cost for public colleges. Also online: slideshows of the top schools in different categories, archives of past years’ rankings and an FAQ on the ranking methodology.
