TCNJ named a Best Value College in the Mid-Atlantic Region

The College of New Jersey has been named to Kiplinger’s 30 Best College Values in the Mid-Atlantic for the 2013-2014 academic year. Highlighting 30 four-year schools that exhibit superior academics and economic value, the list cites the top 10 schools of the Mid-Atlantic for the public, private, and liberal arts categories. TCNJ placed #6 on the list of public schools and is one of only two New Jersey schools included on the list (Rutgers University #8).

Nationally, TCNJ ranks #34 on Kiplinger’s Best Value Public Colleges, placing the highest among New Jersey institutions included on the list (Rutgers-New Brunswick #47 and Ramapo #66). TCNJ also ranks #8 on Kiplinger’s Best Values in Public Colleges for Out-of-State Students list, which commends the College’s strong freshman-retention rate (95 percent) and its low student-faculty ratio (13:1).

The results of 30 Best College Values in the Mid-Atlantic can be seen on the Kiplinger website, along with statistics and financial aid information on each school. The results are also included in the new College Finder Tool, available online at
