Westminster College has been ranked among the “Best Colleges for Your Money” by TIME MONEY Magazine. In order to determine this list of the "best performing colleges," MONEY assembled a team of the nation’s top experts on education quality, financing, and value.
“College is now the second-largest financial expenditure for many families, exceeded only by the purchase of a home,” writes Kim Clark, veteran financial journalist for MONEY Magazine. “So it isn’t surprising that parents and students are taking a hard look at the costs and payoffs of any college they consider.”
MONEY ranked the colleges based on 27 measures of educational quality, affordability and alumni success— which are all critical conditions students evaluate before selecting a college. Nearly 1,400 Westminster undergraduate and graduate students benefit from individualized attention from dedicated faculty and choose from 41 majors, 10 pre-professional programs, and 5 graduate programs. Almost every student at Westminster receive some form of financial aid, albeit merit or need based. Also, 98% of Westminster graduates are employed or attend graduate school within a year.
