Purchase College has been named to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance’s list of 100 best values in public colleges for 2012-13. The ranking cites four-year schools that combine outstanding education with economic value.

“We are proud to be recognized for our commitment to provide a quality educational experience while considering its cost to our students. Student success is of upmost importance to our faculty and administration.” said Thomas J. Schwarz, president of Purchase College.

Kiplinger’s assesses quality according to a number of measurable standards, including the admission rate, the percentage of students who return for sophomore year, the student-faculty ratio and the four-year graduation rate. Cost criteria include low sticker prices, abundant financial aid and low average debt at graduation.

“We applaud this year’s top 100 schools for their efforts to maintain academic standards while meeting the financial needs of their students,” said Janet Bodnar, editor of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance.
