UR Ranks High on Princeton Review's List of Best Value Colleges

February 5, 2020

UNIVERSITY OF RICHMOND — The Princeton Review reported its list of the 200 Best Value Colleges for 2020. The University of Richmond ranked #62, making the “Top 75” list. The University also ranked #6 on the “Best Schools for Internships” list.

Richmond is among only 1% of institutions in the U.S. with both a "need-blind" admission policy and a guarantee to meet 100% of demonstrated need for traditional undergraduate applicants. Additionally, all first-year applicants are considered for merit-based aid, including full-tuition scholarships and a variety of interest-based programs.

From resume review to connecting students with alumni, UR’s Career Services offer a variety of resources related to internships. Every undergraduate student is eligible to receive a fellowship of up to $4,000 for a summer internship or faculty-mentored research project through The Richmond Guarantee, a hallmark UR program.

The “Best Value Colleges” ranking annually names undergraduate institutions the education services company recommends as offering the best return on investment. The ranking is determined by a combination of academics, costs, financial aid, debt, graduation rates, and alumni career and salary data.

“The schools we chose comprise only 7% of the nation's four-year colleges," noted Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's editor-in-chief. "Every school we selected offers outstanding academics, generous financial aid, and stellar career services. We recommend them highly to college applicants and parents seeking schools that are academically top-notch and committed to making their programs affordable.”
