North Carolina State University received more accolades for providing a quality education at an affordable price today as the university ranked sixth in the “Top 10 Best Value Public Colleges for 2013,” released by The Princeton Review.
An education services company, The Princeton Review chose its “Best Value Colleges” for 2013 based on criteria covering academics, cost of attendance and financial aid. The methodology examined more than 30 factors using data from the company’s surveys of administrators and students at 650 colleges with strong academic programs.
NC State is no stranger to Princeton Review best-value rankings. In 2006 it was named both second best value among the nation’s public colleges and universities and one of the nation’s 25 “most connected” campuses; in 2009 it was sixth on the best value list and was ninth in 2011.
NC State also appeared on 2012-13 best-value lists recently compiled by Kiplinger’s (21st in-state best value) and U.S. News & World Report (fifth in best overall public university value).
