Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine ranks University of Richmond No. 14 on its 2010-11 list of 100 best values among private universities for delivering "a high-quality education at an affordable price."

Kiplinger's noted that the net price of a year at a private college or university -- the cost after financial aid -- makes some of the best higher education institutions "a downright bargain."

Richmond continues its longstanding policy of need-blind admission and meeting 100 percent of demonstrated financial need of any admitted domestic student. Students from Virginia families making $40,000 a year or less can attend Richmond at no cost.

The annual Kiplinger 100 rankings appear in the December issue of Kiplinger's Personal Finance, on newsstands Nov. 9. They can also be viewed online at www.kiplinger.com/links/college.

Selected from a pool of more than 600 private institutions provided by Peterson's, schools on the Kiplinger list were ranked by academic quality and affordability -- with quality accounting for two-thirds of the total. Because liberal arts colleges focus on undergraduates and universities include graduate students, Kiplinger's divides the schools into two categories. The rankings factor in both the data and the results of Kiplinger's reporting.
