UMM named to Forbes' best college buy list
The University of Minnesota, Morris is the only Minnesota school to make the recently published Forbes 100 Best College Buys list.
The rankings for the 100 Best Buys list were calculated by dividing each institution's overall quality score by its average net tuition rate -- after allowance for scholarship grants -- from the 2003-2004 through 2006-2007 academic years.
The institutions of higher education in this ranking are schools which award undergraduate degrees or certificates requiring "four or more years" of study, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Only those schools categorized by The Carnegie Foundation as Doctorate-granting Universities, Master's Colleges and Universities, or Baccalaureate Colleges are included in the sample of schools.
