Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine has once again named the State University of New York at Fredonia as one of the best values in public higher education in the country, based on a series of metrics for academic strength and affordability.

Schools on Kiplinger’s “Best College Values” 2019 list met or exceeded Kipinger’s definition of value: a high-quality education at an affordable price. Kiplinger analyzed Fredonia’s academic measures, including student-to-faculty ratio, the test scores of incoming freshmen and the percentage of students who return for sophomore year. They also took into consideration Fredonia’s affordable tuition rates, generous financial aid and low student debt at graduation.

“SUNY Fredonia takes great pride in being recognized by Kiplinger’s for providing a high quality, affordable education to students, said Fredonia Interim President Dennis L. Hefner. “It shows prospective students that Fredonia can give them the best college experience possible without being overwhelmed with student debt.”

“Fredonia is attractive to students and their families because we place student success at the center of everything we do,” said Vice President for Enrollment and Student Services Cedric Howard. “Faculty and staff have carried on a tradition of excellence that has created opportunities for students in research, performance, athletics and leadership. Students are fully immersed in campus life because of the exceptional co-curricular learning experiences available.”

Fredonia is one of 14 SUNY schools on the Best College Values list. Kiplinger’s evaluated 1,200 public and private four-year colleges, and only the top 400 were selected. SUNY Fredonia has been a perennial selection in Kiplinger’s and other highly regarded rankings, such as U.S. News & World Report.
