Miami makes top 10 of Kiplinger's list of 30 Best College Values in the Midwest

Miami University has been named to Kiplinger's list of 30 Best College Values in the Midwest for 2014.

Miami is 10th on the list of public colleges, led by the University of Michigan. The University of Chicago tops the list of private universities, and Grinnell College in Grinnell, Iowa, ranks first for liberal arts colleges.

The new regional rankings are based on the 100 "Best Values" list Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine released in December.

Miami's "high four-year graduation rate, low average student debt at graduation, abundant financial aid, a low sticker price and overall great value" were factors in the university placing 54th among in-state best values nationwide for public universities and 48th for out-of-state public university values, according to the report.

Miami places in the 100 Best Values list every year since Kiplinger's began publishing the rankings in 1998.
