Kiplinger’s Names Duquesne Among its 300 Best College Values for 2018

Kiplinger has named Duquesne University as one of its 300 Best College Values for 2018

Introduced in 1998, the rankings combine public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges into a single, comprehensive list. Kiplinger also ranks the 100 best values in each category. The analysis is based on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability, not subjective criteria.   Duquesne University is ranked No. 96 among private universities.

The full rankings are now available online and will appear in print in the February 2018 issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance.

"Our rankings, which weigh affordability alongside academic quality, are a great resource for students and their parents when sorting through college choices," said Mark Solheim, editor of Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine. "We start with a universe of nearly 1,200 schools and trim the list using measures of academic quality. We then rank the schools based on cost and financial aid data. All 300 schools on our list are worth a look."

At Kiplinger.com, visitors have access to the "Find the Best College for You" tool and other resources that let readers sort by admission rate, average debt at graduation and other criteria for all schools, plus in-state and out-of-state costs for public colleges.
