TLU Tops U.S. News & World Report's 2019 ''Best Value'' List
Posted on 9/14/2018 8:15:00 AM.
(Seguin) -- Texas Lutheran University (TLU) is again at the top of “U.S. News & World Report's” Best Colleges rankings among regional colleges in the West, ranking first on the list for “Best Value,” third for veterans, and fourth overall. This is the fourth consecutive year TLU has been named “Best Value.”

“A quality education and affordability are two things TLU is committed to offering our students,” said TLU President Dr. Stuart Dorsey. “Many students and their parents are especially focused on the financial impact of receiving a college degree from a four-year university. TLU has been at the top of this list since 2015 and that speaks to the fact we are leaders in both academics and overall value.”

Rankings are based on data collected from several categories, including academic reputation, admissions selectivity, faculty resources, retention, graduation rates and alumni support.

“U.S. News & World Report” then ranks colleges and universities based upon region and classification. Regional schools focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts and in fields such as business, nursing, and education.

TLU earns the No. 1 spot in the West for “Best Value” based upon its high overall ranking combined with modest net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid.

According to “U.S. News & World Report,” these are schools that are above average academically and cost considerably less than many other schools when the financial aid that they dispense, in the form of need-based grants and scholarships, is considered. Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included, because the publication considers the most significant values to be among colleges that are above average academically.

In addition to the “Best Value” honor, TLU is also the No. 3 college in the Western region for veterans and was recently named a 2018 Great Colleges to Work For® by “The Chronicle of Higher Education.”
