COLLEGE PARK, Md. – The University of Maryland ranked No. 10 among public universities according to MONEY Magazine’s inaugural list of Best Value Colleges.  UMD ranked No. 19 overall among U.S. institutions. 

To calculate rankings, MONEY assessed more than 700 colleges in the U.S. based on 24 factors in 3 categories, including educational quality, affordability and alumni success. In addition, MONEY measured comparative value by assessing how well students at each school did vs. what is expected for students with similar economic and academic background, as well as the college’s mix of majors. 

Earlier this year, UMD was also ranked a Best Value College by Forbes, Princeton Review and Kiplinger’s Personal Finance
