Youngstown State University is ranked seventh in the nation in a recent list of the “100 Most Affordable Colleges and Universities.”
College Consensus, an independent online resource dedicated to helping students find the right college, developed the list, according to the YSU News Center.
College Consensus combines the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web to provide an accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school’s reputation and quality.
“In the age of rapidly rising tuition — college costs have risen far faster than the rate of inflation in the 21st century, and even faster than financial aid — affordability is no joke,” the College Consensus said.
The College Consensus ranking reflects YSU’s ongoing efforts to help curb the rising costs of higher education including the Penguin Tuition Promise, which provides that tuition will remain the same for all first-time undergraduate students for four years.
