Asbury Chosen as “Best Value School”

September 18, 2018

It’s no secret an Asbury University education sets graduates up for success in the professions through a whole-person educational approach that includes rigorous liberal arts courses and invaluable spiritual development programming. 

Not only did Asbury rank higher than any other Kentucky college or university in the U.S. News & World Report Best Colleges (Regional Universities- South) category, but it also ranked at No. 29 in the Best Value Schools (Regional Universities-South) category. Again, a higher ranking than any other Kentucky school in the category.

U.S. News & World Report chose Best Value Schools by examining the quality to price ratio in addition to the average amount of need-based scholarships and grants awarded to undergraduates.

So, what is the value of an Asbury education?

Asbury University provides value for students in both the tangible and intangible aspects of a college education.

Asbury University’s high-quality liberal arts class offerings, academic excellence and spiritual vitality provide students with the whole-person education needed to not only succeed in the professions but to impact the world and be innovators in their chosen field.

Hearty financial aid packages and some of the lowest room & board charges in the state help to make Asbury a top-choice for families. Combine this with the fact that 99 percent of Asbury graduates are working or in graduate school within six months of completing their degree and the value multiplies.

These are just a few of the characteristics that earned Asbury a top-spot in the Best Value rankings:

  • 77 percent of undergraduate students receive need-based financial aid at Asbury, making it simple and affordable to fund their college educations and achieve their dreams.
  • At 12:1, Asbury’s student/faculty ratio is superbly low and gives students the chance to engage in lively discussion and hands-on learning experiences.
