9:50 a.m., Jan. 2, 2013--Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine's newest list of the 100 best values in public colleges includes the University of Delaware. The ranking highlights “four-year institutions that deliver a quality education at an affordable price.”

Kiplinger’s said UD placed in the top 100 “thanks to its high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid, a low sticker price, and overall great value.”

For the Record provides information about recent professional activities of University of Delaware faculty, staff, students and alumni.

UD is ranked 29th for in-state students, just behind the University of Texas Austin and Virginia Tech and just ahead of Georgia Tech. Topping the list is the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. UD is ranked 26th for out-of-state students.

The magazine announced the list in its February issue, now on newsstands.

UD was selected from a pool of nearly 600 public four-year colleges and universities. The magazine ranks universities by assessing their quality of education and their costs, and editors then rank each school based on cost and financial aid.

Kiplinger’s assesses quality according to a number of measurable standards, including the admission rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and the four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include low sticker prices, abundant financial aid and low average debt at graduation.

“We applaud this year’s top 100 schools for their efforts to maintain academic standards while meeting the financial needs of their students,” said Janet Bodnar, editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
