Caldwell University was recently named a Best Value College in New Jersey by bestvalueschools.com. Bestvalueschools said that its major determining factors for the list were affordability and academic success, with a special emphasis on schools that work to keep costs low.
“We are very happy to learn of this ranking,” said Joseph Posillico, vice president of enrollment management and communications. “We guide students and their families every step of the way with the resources and tools they need to get the best value possible for a quality education.”
In highlighting Caldwell University, bestvalueschools said, “It’s hard to go wrong with a school like Caldwell, whose core values of respect, excellence, community, and integrity are practically universal in their appeal. And speaking of broad appeal, Caldwell stands out among religious colleges for its comprehensive array of degree programs.” The list also pointed to Caldwell’s nationally recognized Scholars Program, a nine-credit course of interdisciplinary seminars and self-directed projects reserved for the best and the brightest.
Bestvalueschools.com noted that the ranking was published in October and was created using National Center for Education Statistics’ College Navigator and PayScale data to identify the schools based on graduation rate, net price, acceptance rate and a 20-year net return on investment.
