Frostburg State University was recently rated one of America’s 2016-17 “Best Value Colleges” in MONEY Magazine’s “new, uniquely practical analysis” of the best-performing colleges and universities in the country.

Of its 705 “best colleges for your money,” MONEY says each school delivers “the most value – that is, a great education, at an affordable price, that prepares students for rewarding careers.”

“This rating confirms what Frostburg students and alumni have known for decades: FSU is a remarkable value, and we equip our graduates with the knowledge and confidence they need to lead satisfying lives with successful careers,” said President Ronald Nowaczyk. “I’m proud to see Frostburg State University listed among so many outstanding institutions.”

Only about a third of America’s roughly 2,000 four-year colleges and universities survived MONEY’s initial cut, which eliminated all institutions with fewer than 500 students, below-median graduation rates or in current financial distress.

For the best-performing institutions, MONEY then combined the most accurate available pricing estimates and graduates’ likely earnings with a unique analysis of the “value” added by a college compared to peer institutions. The analysis measured 24 separate factors within three categories: educational quality, affordability and outcomes. Each category received equal weighting in the analysis.

MONEY’s ratings system was developed in partnership with Mark Schneider, president of College Measures and vice president of American Institutes for Research. Data for the analysis were sourced from the U.S. Department of Education, Peterson’s, PayScale.com and MONEY/College Measures calculations.

Frostburg was tied at 622 with Mercyhurst University, a private institution in Erie, Pa.
