Augusta University was named a “Top 10 Low-Profile, High-Value College” by Forbes magazine contributor John Wasik, who reviewed an extensive list of rankings by Washington Monthly and narrowed them down to a top 10 list of high-value schools that students should consider.
Ranked second by Washington Monthly as a “Best Bang for the Buck Southeast,” as well as 30th on their list of “Top 30 National Universities,” Augusta University has a lot to offer.
“Augusta University doesn’t even get an individual ranking in U.S. News. … Yet in our rankings, it comes in at number 30,” states Washington Monthly’s Kevin Carey. “Augusta is a public research university in Georgia that enrolls an economically and racially diverse student body, nearly two-thirds of whom are women. With a focus on in-demand jobs in the health care sector, Augusta graduates earn far more money than our statistical models predict and pay their loans back at a much higher rate, all for an affordable net price of about $10,000 per year for families earning less than $75,000.”
