For the fourth year in a row, Stevenson University has been named among the nation’s “Best Value Schools” by U.S. News and World Report. The 2022 Best Colleges listings, released September 13, 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 has been recognized among the Best Value Schools in our region and the nation four years running,” said Elliot Hirshman, President of Stevenson University. “Stevenson is committed to ensuring access to an exceptional college experience for students and their families through a broad range of institutional aid and scholarship programs. We also believe that our strong focus on career education and providing personalized support to help our students grow intellectually, socially, and professionally all contribute to the value of a Stevenson education.”

Originally founded in 1947 a Villa Julie College, Stevenson University serves more than 2,700 undergraduate students at its campus in Owings Mills, Md., as well as students in the university’s new Doctor of Psychology program and approximately 1,000 online graduate and professional students through Stevenson University Online. Stevenson is dedicated to creating connections to careers, a supportive community, and exceptional experiences in and out of the classroom to foster students’ academic, social, and professional success.
