Highlighted by the University of Virginia’s (UVa) top overall ranking, five Virginia colleges and universities were ranked in the top 50 of their categories in the Princeton Review’s annual ranking of “Best Value Colleges.”
UVa earned the No. 1 spot among public schools on the list, which was determined by ranking undergraduate academics, tuition and financial aid offerings. The College of William & Mary was No. 7 on that list, and James Madison University and Virginia Tech were also listed among the top 50 schools.
The University of Richmond was ranked in the top 50 among private colleges. Princeton Review does not rank schools outside the top 10 on either list.
All five colleges offer bachelor’s degrees in accounting, and all but Richmond offer master’s degrees in accounting.
“This national recognition of these outstanding universities and their efforts to make higher education more accessible and affordable is a great building block toward making Virginia one of the most highly educated states in the nation,” Gov. Bob McDonnell said in a statement. “Having five colleges and universities named to this prestigious list reinforces that the commonwealth is a national leader for higher education.”
