New College Ranks No. 11 Among Kiplinger’s Top 100 Best Value Public Colleges

New College of Florida has again been recognized as a top value by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine, ranked 11th on its list of the country’s 100 best values in public colleges for 2014.
This is the 11th straight year New College has appeared in the top 20 of the magazine’s list of colleges that provide top-quality education at an affordable cost. Kiplinger’s praised New College for its “high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid, a low sticker price, and overall great value.”
New College had the sixth-lowest cost for in-state students among all of Kiplinger’s top 100 public colleges, as well as the tenth-lowest debt at graduation among colleges reporting that figure.
“The college landscape today is very different—tuition increases and student debt dominate the national conversation surrounding higher education,” said Janet Bodnar, editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. “This year’s top 100 schools have made admirable strides to maintain academic integrity and standards while meeting the financial needs of their students.”
Kiplinger’s database also reported New College’s 10:1 student-faculty ratio and the high quality of its incoming students: Nearly nine out of ten students score 600 or more on the verbal portion of the SAT exam, and about two-thirds score 600 or more on the math portion of the SAT.
Kiplinger’s annual public college rankings will be published in the Feb. 2014 issue, which will be on newsstands Dec. 31, and are available online at this link.
