Alcorn State University ranked third on Value Collegesí Top 50 Best Value HBCUs list for 2018 (101 hits)

Alcorn State University is being recognized again as one of the nation's top historically black colleges and universities.

The University is ranked third on the Top 50 Value Colleges' Historically Black Colleges & Universities 2018 list. Alcorn is the highest ranked Mississippi school on the website's list.

Value Colleges is a website that offers meticulously researched, straightforward, and practical answers to commonly asked questions about value and affordability when making college decisions. Further, it creates feature articles clearing up misconceptions and confusion about college costs and benefits, as well as numerical rankings of institutions and degree programs to help college-bound readers choose financially responsible paths.

Dr. Donzell Lee, Alcorn's interim president, credits the focus on affordability and drive of the university's community for its many accomplishments this year.

"With exceptional scholastic and educational performances of our students, faculty, and staff, along with a determined pursuit of excellence, Alcorn is propelling to unimaginable heights, " said Lee. "We are extremely proud to be one of the nationís most astute colleges and universities focused on helping our students earn a degree that results in a real return on their college investment."

To develop the ranking, Value Colleges compiled a range of data to determine what colleges and universities provided the balance of quality, affordability, and opportunity to be considered the best value. The website ranked HBCUs based on four key elements of Reputation (based on U.S. News & World Report ranking), ROI (based on College Scorecard data), Real Cost (nonresident, based on IPEDs data) and Graduation Rate (based on Department of Education data).
