UNE named among 2023 best colleges in the nation for money

UNE among best colleges in the country for your money 2023

The University of New England has been named to the 2023 “Best Colleges For Your Money” list, published by Money Magazine.

This comes on the heels of the Princeton Review naming UNE one of the best colleges in the country for 2024.

Money determines its rankings by giving equal weight to quality of education (including factors such as graduation rates and instructor quality), affordability (by examining student debt and loan default rates), and outcomes (which take into account graduates’ incomes).

“Given the national conversation around the value of a college education, important rankings like these help prospective students and their families select an institution that will give them the best return on their investment,” UNE President James Herbert said. “It is an honor to be selected as one of the best colleges for your money, and it reinforces how we succeed in setting our students up for financial success.”

Further enforcing the return on investment a UNE education has for students and their families, 93% of UNE graduates are either employed or enrolled in higher education within one year of graduation. According to the Brookings Institute, UNE is the #1 college in Maine for increasing career earnings. UNE is also consistently ranked as Zippia’s best college in Maine for finding a job.
