Ramapo College of New Jersey has received high marks from Money magazine in its new rankings of “Best Colleges for Your Money.”
Ramapo was ranked #4 in New Jersey and in the top 16 percent in the nation in Money’s list, which considers 26 factors, including cost, graduation rate and average earnings after graduation.
“We are proud to earn this recognition,” said Christopher Romano, vice president of enrollment management and student affairs. “As New Jersey’s premier liberal arts college, this recognition reaffirms the value of a degree grounded in the liberal arts in that our graduates are finding success upon graduation. And, it supports our commitment to developing a high quality education at an affordable price.”
Money magazine included 727 colleges and universities on its list. To be considered, colleges had to have more than 500 students, a graduation rate that was above average and not be in financial distress.
