SUNY Oneonta is one of the top 300 “Best Value Colleges” in the country, according to a new ranking by Forbes magazine.

The business journal’s “Best Value Colleges 2017: 300 Schools Worth the Investment” list, released April 26, singles out schools that deliver a “meaningful return on investment,” according to Forbes Senior Editor Caroline Howard.

“With prices topping $80,000 for a public 4-year college degree and $180,000 for their private counterparts, selecting an undergraduate school is one of the biggest financial decisions a typical American high school student and her family will make,” Howard wrote. “The FORBES 2017 Best Value College ranking indexes 300 schools that deliver the best bang for the tuition buck based on tuition costs, school quality, post-grad earnings, student debt and graduation success.”

Forbes used data collected from the U.S. Department of Education's College Scorecard as well as PayScale, the world's largest salary database, to calculate the rankings.
