The University of Central Florida is among the top 25 colleges in the nation that are least likely to leave graduates in debt, according to a Newsweek article released this week.
In the “Best Colleges for You” article, Newsweek and the online news site The Daily Beast recognized UCF as eighth on their list of inexpensive higher education institutions, in part because 97 percent of full-time undergraduates receive financial aid.
The publication sorted through the nation’s top 500 public and private four-year colleges, selecting schools that offered affordable tuition and accessible financial aid.
The Newsweek rankings also recognized UCF as one of the “Most Beautiful” schools.
Last month UCF was named by Forbes as one of the top 50 most-affordable colleges and universities in the nation. Coming in at 42 on the list, UCF was noted for its prestigious designation as a high-research university, among other data showing how it combines affordability with a quality education.
Also this year UCF was named one of the nation’s “best value” colleges and universities by The Princeton Review and Kiplinger magazine.
