Washington College a Kiplinger "Best Value"

CHESTERTOWN—Washington College is one of the 100 best values among private liberal arts colleges, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. The publication’s annual list, released October 28, looked at data from 600 private universities and colleges before selecting the 100 universities and 100 liberal arts colleges that best combine a high-quality education with an affordable price.

To determine its combination of quality and affordability the survey considered such statistics as freshman test scores, student-to-faculty ratio and graduation rates, then determined the actual cost of tuition and fees after need-based aid and merit scholarships were considered.

The Best Values in Private Colleges list will appear in the December 2010 issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine and will be available at
