Truman "Ranks Up" on Kiplingers

Truman State University has again been recognized by Kiplinger’s Personal Finance as one of the nation’s best values in public education. Truman ranked No. 19, on Kiplinger’s recently released list of the 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges.” The new ranking places the University four spots higher than last year. In the past two years Truman has improved a combined 12 spots.

Truman is highlighted further in the main article as a school that has traditionally landed in the top third of the rankings each year due to strong academics and an affordable price. Truman is the highest-rated Missouri school on Kiplinger’s list and was the only university in the state to be included in the top 65.

The annual public school rankings appear in Kiplinger’s February 2013 issue, available now online and in print. Web visitors will find special features, including information about how the public colleges are ranked and a tool that lets readers sort by in-state and out-of-state cost, average debt at graduation and admission rate.
