Three for the money

Chico State ranked high for education, value

Chico State has been ranked one of the nation’s best educational values by Money magazine for the third consecutive year, the school announced via press release Tuesday (July 11).

The university was pegged at 174 on a list of more than 2,400 colleges evaluated for the magazine’s “Best Colleges for Your Money 2017.” Rankings are based on educational value, cost and alumni success, and are calculated using data from the U.S. Department of Education, and other sources.

“As more families are trying to find quality institutions while staying within their means, Chico State again stands out not only in the state of California but nationally,” Adam Stoltz, director of Chico State’s Office of Admissions, said in the release.

Chico State came in at No. 95 on the list in 2016, and No. 154 in 2015.
