The University of Oklahoma has again been selected as a “Best Value College for 2020” by The Princeton Review. 

The education services company evaluated 656 colleges and universities nationwide, choosing 200 for this year’s list. Only 7% of the nation’s four-year colleges were included in the rankings, and OU is the only public university in Oklahoma to make the list.

According to The Princeton Review, all of the schools on the Best Value Colleges list share three features: stellar academics, affordable cost and strong career prospects.

The rankings were compiled by comparing 40 different datapoints, including academics, cost, financial aid, career services, graduation rates, student debt and alumni support. 

The Princeton Review also factored in data from its surveys of students attending the colleges, as well as surveys of alumni of the schools about their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction. 

OU is included in other rankings by The Princeton Review, including its position as the No. 5 school in the nation with the Happiest Students. The Review also lists OU as a Top Green College.
