N.C. A&T Ranked Best Value HBCU

Best Value Schools HBCUGREENSBORO, N.C. (Oct. 12, 2017) – In its latest ranking, Best Value Schools ranked North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University at the top of its 10 Best Value Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) 2018 list.

For this ranking, Best Value Schools weighs the cost of attending the university versus value to determine the best value, or as the site describes it, “the value of the degree is what you gain by earning the degree.”

To compile the ranking, editors began with a pool of 72 HBCUs identified from College Navigator, then used the cost information and 20-year return on investment information (ROI) from PayScale. Points were awarded based on affordability and ROI. Data from the U.S. News and World Report Top HBCU rankings were also utilized and points were awarded to compile the overall scores.

A maximum of 12 points were possible from those three categories. N.C. A&T received 11 of 12 total points.
