WSJ: UW No. 3 in the country for best value

UW News

The University of Washington is among the top schools on The Wall Street Journal’s newest college ranking: value for the money. The UW was ranked third in the nation by the newspaper.

To compile the list, The Wall Street Journal said it looked at the nation’s top 250 schools, as rated by the newspaper, and divided the rating by the average net price — including tuition, fees, room and board — for students who receive federal or institutional aid. (The Wall Street Journal story on the value ranking is behind a paywall.)

Only Berea College in Kentucky and University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, rank higher on The Journal’s value list.

This isn’t the first time the UW has been recognized for offering top value for its students. Last month, Money magazine put the UW on its list of Best Colleges for Your Money.
