Belmont University was recently named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s Best College Values for 2019 annual ranking. Introduced in 1998, the rankings combine public schools, private universities and private liberal arts colleges into a single, comprehensive list. The analysis is based on objective measurements of academic quality and affordability.
To arrive at its best value rankings, Kiplinger’s begins with data on nearly 1,200 public and private four-year schools and then narrows the list based on measures of academic quality. Then each school is ranked using cost and financial aid measures.
