UNL again among Kiplinger's best-value universities

Kiplinger’s Personal Finance has named the University of Nebraska-Lincoln among its Top 100 Best Values in Public Colleges for 2016. The university checked in at No. 75, joining 12 other Big Ten schools on the annual list.

UNL was No. 68 in 2015, and No. 83 in 2014. The university also was included in the Top 300 best values among all colleges and universities.

The university landed on the annual list thanks to its four-year graduation rate, average student debt at graduation, level of financial aid, a low sticker price and overall great value, according to the magazine’s editors.

It is the 12th straight year that UNL has appeared in Kiplinger Top 100. Other public Big Ten schools honored by Kiplinger were the University of Wisconsin, Ohio State University, Indiana University, Purdue University, the University of Michigan, Michigan State University, the University of Minnesota, Penn State University, Rutgers University, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Iowa and the University of Maryland-College Park.
