Salisbury University Gets "Best Bang for the Buck" College Recognition

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md.- Washington Monthly magazine named Salisbury University one of "America's Best Bang For The Buck Colleges."

According to Salisbury University, the list spotlights 349 schools in the country that "do the best job of helping non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices."

SU was ranked at No. 93; No. 41 among master's-level universities. With over 1,500 schools examined, this places SU among the top 10 percent nationwide.

To be included, colleges had to meet criteria related to Pell grant recipients, graduation rates and student loan default rates.  Net price of attendance also was a factor.

According to Salisbury University, two other publications also named SU one of the better higher education values in the United States this fall.

"Money" ranked SU second among University System of Maryland campuses in its "Best College Values," after the University of Maryland College Park. At No. 223, SU is in the top 15 percent nationally, based on factors including "educational quality, affordability and alumni earnings."

In "Forbes" SU was among the top three System campuses with College Park and the University of Maryland Baltimore County, based on factors ranging from student satisfaction and graduation rates to career success and student debt.
