OCU Named Kiplinger's Best Value

Oklahoma City University was named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of the Top 300 Best College Values of 2016.

OCU earned a spot on the magazine’s list of 100 best values in private universities. The university’s ranking was 10 places higher than a year ago, from 73rd in the country up to 63rd out of 224 total schools considered.

Introduced in 1998, the rankings highlight public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges that combine outstanding academics with affordable cost. In addition, Kiplinger has ranked the top 100 best values in each category.

Kiplinger assesses value by measurable standards of academic quality and affordability. Quality measures include the admission rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include sticker price, financial aid and average debt at graduation.
