USF Listed as a Best Value Midwest University
November 10, 2016
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The University of Saint Francis was named one of the best value schools among Midwest regional universities by U.S. News and World Report.
The calculation used takes into account a school’s academic quality, as indicated by its 2017 U.S. News Best Colleges ranking, and the 2015-2016 net cost of attendance for a student who received the average level of need-based financial aid. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the determined value. Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their respective academic categories are included.
