Morris Value Recognized by Forbes Magazine

Posted by Jenna Ray on Tuesday, Aug. 5, 2014

The University of Minnesota, Morris has again been included in Forbes magazine’s listing of "America’s Top Colleges.” Rankings are based on an institution’s success in the areas of student satisfaction, post-graduate success, graduation rate, and academic success.

In terms of cost, Morris ranked fourth-lowest in the Midwest and seventh-lowest nationally among non-military institutions for which figures were reported. The campus was also the least expensive of the 18 Minnesota colleges on the list, with total annual costs of $23,206. Overall, Morris was ranked 93rd in the Midwest and 396th in the nation.

“These rankings are further evidence that Morris remains a superb educational value at a time when the price of a quality college education is spiraling out of grasp for many families,” says Chancellor Jacqueline R. Johnson.

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are 2,870 four-year colleges in the United States. Forbes ranks only the country’s 650 foremost institutions of higher education.

“America’s Top Colleges” rankings were compiled by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, a nonprofit research center, in consultation with Forbes. Additional information on the listings and methodology is available at
