LATROBE, PA – Saint Vincent College placed among the top five percent of U.S. colleges and universities in the 2020-21 Best Colleges for the Money rankings by College Factual, a website dedicated to helping students find their best fit for education at the best cost.
Saint Vincent College ranked 47th nationally among 1,472 colleges and universities analyzed, and eighth among 111 institutions in the Middle Atlantic region.
“We are honored to receive another high ranking recognizing both our educational quality and our exceptional value,” said Father Paul R. Taylor, O.S.B., Saint Vincent College president. “Saint Vincent College is committed to providing our students with an education of the highest quality at an affordable cost, while preparing them for lives of meaning, success and leadership.”
The Best Colleges for the Money Rankings identify colleges that are offering the best education quality for the best price. College Factual devised the rankings by measuring the total average cost of the degree and comparing the cost of the school to other institutions of similar value. The schools delivering the best educational quality for the lowest price appear at the top of the rankings.
Along with the overall Best Colleges for the Money rankings, College Factual also released best value rankings of individual bachelor degree programs at institutions across the U.S. and Saint Vincent College was well-represented.
Ranking in the top 10 percent nationally in best value bachelor’s programs were Saint Vincent College’s undergraduate programs in criminology (2nd of 72), general social sciences (9th of 539), marketing (10th of 358), communication/media studies (12th of 490), general biology (13th of 617), business administration and management (20th of 876), and biological and biomedical sciences (23rd of 637).
In addition to the College Factual rankings, Saint Vincent College’s quality educational programs have also recently garnered recognition by U.S. News and World Report (first tier of national liberal arts colleges, A+ Schools for B Students), Money magazine (Best Colleges for the Money, Best Small Colleges, Most Transformative Colleges), Study.com (Top Christian Colleges and Universities in the U.S.) and Washington Monthly (National Liberal Arts Colleges).
