UW named a ‘Best Value College’


The University of Wisconsin–Madison was named one of Princeton Review’s 209 “Best Value Colleges,” which all “demonstrate impressive commitments to affordability via extremely generous financial aid for students with need and/or a comparatively low sticker price.”

Princeton Review gave UW–Madison a “Return on Investment” rating of 91/99, based on more than 40 data points that cover academics, affordability and career outcomes of graduates.

Among public schools, UW was ranked No. 22 for best value, No. 7 for best financial aid and No. 15 for best alumni networks.

“We have made it a priority to create access and opportunity for all students, including those with high financial need,” said Scott Owczarek, UW’s interim director of student financial aid. “By removing financial barriers to UW, we can keep top talent in Wisconsin.”
