For the third time this year, Truman has received national attention as one of the nation’s best college values.
The editors of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine ranked Truman at No. 3 on their list of “25 Best College Values Under $30,000 a Year” for 2014. Truman was also ranked No. 3 on their “30 Best College Values in the Midwest” for 2014. Truman was the only Missouri school on the list, which was recently published online at kiplinger.com. In the eight states that border Missouri, only five schools made the list.
Truman comes in well below the $30,000 threshold established for the list. The average annual tuition at Truman is $7,096 for in-state students and $12,968 for out-of-state students.
This is the second time this year representatives from Kiplinger’s have put a national spotlight on Truman. In January, Truman was recognized as one of the nation’s best values in public education, coming in at No. 12 on the magazine’s list of 100 “Best Values in Public Colleges.” Truman was the highest-rated Missouri school on that list, and the only university in the state to be included in the top 65.
