Loyola University Maryland has again been named a “Best Value College” by Forbes, which released its second-annual list of the 300 U.S. colleges and universities that provide students the most meaningful return on investment.

The value ranking is based on tuition costs, school quality, post-grad earnings, student debt, and graduation success. These schools “deliver the best bang for the tuition buck,” according to Forbes.

Forbes’ methodology weighs data from multiple sources, including online salary database PayScale and the U.S. Department of Education’s College Scorecard, among others. Earlier this year, PayScale ranked Loyola in the top 12 percent of U.S. colleges and universities for return on investment, and Loyola’s value was recognized by The Princeton Review in its guide to “Colleges that Pay You Back.” Loyola was also recently named one of the “Best Colleges for Your Money” by Money Magazine and one of the nation’s “Best College Values: Private Universities” by Kiplinger’s.

A full list of the Forbes “Best Value Colleges” for 2017 is available at forbes.com.
