Clemson Ranked a Best Value by Kiplinger

Kiplinger magazine has rated Clemson University among the best values in public higher education in its ranking of the "100 Best Values in Public Colleges" released Tuesday. Clemson's ranking - 41st for in-state students, 46th for out-of-state students - was based on a variety of factors that matched quality of education with cost. "Kiplinger through the years has consistently rated Clemson as a high-value, high-quality return on the investment," said Clemson admissions director Robert Barkley. "It's gratifying for the value of a Clemson education to be acknowledged highly in a number of publications, but particularly so in case of Kiplinger, which specifically compares costs and benefits. Especially in today's economy, that's an important distinction for prospective students and their families." View Study >
