Redlands in Top 15

University of Redlands is an “A+ School” and ranked fifth in “Great Schools, Great Prices” by 2012 U.S. News & World Report

University of Redlands again was named an “A+ School” and ranked in the Top 15 regional universities—west in the 2012 U.S. News and World Report Best Colleges released this week.

The ranking is based on indicators of excellence including freshman retention and graduation rates and strength of faculty.

The University also ranked fifth among regional universities—west in “Great Schools, Great Prices.”

“It is always rewarding to have others recognize the University of Redlands’ distinctive academic quality and it makes it all the better for parents and students to know that we are “a good deal” as well,” said University President James Appleton.

“I want to encourage perspective students and parents to take a good look before deciding it might be too expensive to come to the U of R. They will be surprised and will value the results.”

“Great Schools, Great Prices” is calculated using the school’s academic quality according to its Best Colleges ranking and the net cost of attendance for a student who receives the average level of need-based financial aid. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the deal, according to Best Colleges methodology.
