For the fifth year, the University of North Georgia has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance national list of Best College Values. UNG is one of only four public universities in Georgia on the 2018 ranking, which reflects academic quality and affordability, according to a news release from the school.
"UNG's continued inclusion on Kiplinger's Best College Values list is indicative of our affordability, but also our academic excellence," said UNG President Bonita Jacobs. "Together, these factors result in a truly exceptional educational opportunity."
UNG is ranked 94th on the list of best values in public colleges. The other public universities in Georgia on the list are University of Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Georgia State.
Kiplinger's quality measures include admission rate, percentage of students who return for sophomore year, student-faculty ratio, and four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include tuition price, financial aid and average debt at graduation.
The full rankings are now available online and will appear in print in the February 2018 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, on newsstands Jan. 9. A complete listing of Kiplinger's Best College Values for 2018 is available online.
