SALISBURY, MD—For the seventh consecutive year, Washington Monthly magazine has named Salisbury University one of “America’s Best Bang for the Buck Colleges.”
The list spotlights schools that “help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.”
SU was ranked at No. 149 among master’s-level universities nationwide and No. 138 among all universities in the Northeast. With over 1,500 schools examined, this places SU among the top 20 percent nationwide.
To be included, colleges had to meet criteria related to social mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students), research, civic engagement, Pell grant recipients, graduation rates and student loan default rates. Net price of attendance also was a factor.
Washington Monthly is the latest publication to laud SU’s quality and value this summer. The University also was ranked among “America’s Top Colleges” and by Forbes, “The Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money magazine and “America’s Best Value Colleges” by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. For the 21st consecutive year, The Princeton Review named it among The Best 385 Colleges in the U.S.
