Want exceptional value from your college?

According to The Wall Street Journal, Northern Kentucky University is one of the top colleges in the United States in terms of exceptional value.

The study looked at how quickly a degree from NKU pays for its cost through the salary students earn after graduation. It takes NKU graduates an average of one
year and two months to pay off the net price of a degree, according to the study. NKU was the only public university in Kentucky to land within the top 100 rankings.

“NKU is an engine for social mobility and this report just confirms that the hard work we are doing to remain affordable while simultaneously providing a high-quality education for students in our region, is working,” Interim President Bonita Brown said in a release. “We have been successful at preparing students for their desired career paths and will continue to do so while keeping affordability and ROI as top priorities.”

Last week, NKU named Cady Short-Thompson as the university’s seventh president. She will formally begin her role as president on Oct. 2.
