Kiplinger’s Personal Finance: UD A Best Value
Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine has included UD on its list of the country's
best value liberal arts colleges for 2016. The publication's annual list, which was
released Wednesday, Dec. 16, ranks 300 public, private and liberal arts colleges and
universities that provide high-quality academics at a reasonable cost.
This is the university's fourth consecutive year to be ranked by Kiplinger's.
Kiplinger's rankings measure academic quality and affordability. Academic criteria
include the student admission rate, the test scores of incoming freshmen, the ratio
of students to faculty members and four-year and five-year graduation rates. Kiplinger's
measures the cost to attend, the availability and average amount of need-based and
merit-based financial aid and the average student debt at graduation.

Already this year, the university has been recognized by Forbes magazine, The Princeton
Review, U.S. News & World Report and Washington Monthly, as well as many others. A
