MONEY recently included St. Norbert College among the most affordable private colleges based in the U.S., ranking it as 37th out of 50 different schools included in the listing.
MONEY evaluated approximately 2,000 four-year universities and colleges located throughout the U.S. Then, it determined the schools that offered the most value, meaning a good education with an affordable cost that prepared students for promising careers and futures.
Schools that had graduation rates below the median were not included in the ranking. MONEY also cut out schools that have financial troubles and that have under 500 undergraduates.
After these schools were culled, there were 705 colleges that were graded on 24 factors for three different categories: quality of education, affordability for students and success of alumni.
MONEY also evaluated the comparative value through the success of students in the schools and what was predicted for the students’ success because of their academic and economic backgrounds.
In addition, the rankings looked at the mixture of different majors offered to students.
Additionally, St. Norbert College and its academic excellence has been nationally honored through Forbes Magazine’s college rankings and U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges. St. Norbert is a “Best College” in The Princeton Review and a Character-Building College in the Templeton Foundation’s Honor Rolls. It is included in the top 10 Catholic national liberal arts colleges.
