For the third year in a row, Stevenson University has been named among the nation’s “Best Value Schools” by U.S. News and World Report. The 2021 Best Colleges listings, released September 14, also ranked Stevenson among the “Best Regional Universities-North” and “Best Colleges for Veterans.”

To assign a university the “Best Value” designation, U. S. News evaluates an institution’s academic quality and its net cost of attendance after the average level of need-based financial aid. The higher the quality of the program and the lower the cost, the better the value. Only schools ranked in or near the top half of their categories are included because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that are above average academically.

“We are pleased that Stevenson continues to be recognized among the Best Value Schools in our region and the nation,” said Elliot Hirshman, President of Stevenson University. “At Stevenson, we are committed to ensuring access to an exceptional college experience for students and their families through a broad range of institutional aid and scholarship programs.”

Founded in 1947, Stevenson University serves more than 2,700 traditional undergraduate students on campuses in Owings Mills and Stevenson, Maryland. Stevenson’s mission is to provide students with exceptional experiences, career connections in and beyond the classroom, and a supportive community in which to grow intellectually, socially, and professionally.
