Kiplinger’s ranks UW-Eau Claire among top 100 best values

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has again named UW-Eau Claire one of the nation’s 100 best values in public colleges.

In Kiplinger’s 2010-11 “100 Best Values in Public Colleges,” UW-Eau Claire is ranked 68th for in-state students and 69th for out-of-state students. The rankings are based on academic quality, overall costs and financial aid availability.

UW-Eau Claire also was deemed more affordable than the national average and more accessible to students of all economic backgrounds in separate reports released by the College Board and U.S. News & World Report magazine last fall.
