UGA up on value list


UGA ranks sixth on the Kiplinger’s Personal Finance list of 100 best college and university values for 2012 for in-state students. It ranks ninth for out-of-state students. Schools in Kiplinger’s 100 are selected from a pool of more than 500 public four-year colleges and universities. They are then ranked according to academic quality—admission and retention rates, student-faculty ratios and four- and six-year graduation rates—as well as cost and financial aid. Two other Georgia institutions made the list: The Georgia Institute of Technology ranked 31st for in-state value, and North Georgia College and State University in Dahlonega came in 88th.

The rankings appear in Kiplinger’s February issue and online at
