What Do We Mean by Value?
While a higher education degree will, on average, increase your lifetime earnings, it’s also a major financial investment. That’s why our ranking methodology prioritizes value metrics like degree-specific ROIs and career outcomes. Your definition of value may vary, from affordable tuition and financial aid availability to faculty quality, university prestige, and online course opportunities. Whatever you value most, we’re here to make your choices easier.
