Kiplinger Names UMW Best Value in Small Colleges

The University of Mary Washington is listed among Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine’s “30 Best Values in Small Colleges” for 2014.

The university ranks sixth among public colleges on the list. The ranking is part of Kiplinger’s new College Finder tool, which complements the magazine’s annual “Best Values in Public Colleges” and “Best Values in Private Colleges” lists and also reveals the best college values in each region, best values among different-sized campuses and best values under $30,000 a year.

In December, UMW was named one of Kiplinger’s “100 Best Values in Public Colleges” for 2014. The university ranks fifth among Virginia’s best values and 61st out of 100 four-year public institutions nationwide.

UMW has consistently appeared in Kiplinger since 2006, and continuously ranks high in selective college guidebooks.
