UH Mānoa considered a ‘Best Value’ in national ranking

UH News April 23, 2018 

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa has made the list of America’s Best Value Colleges in 2018, according to Forbes magazine. UH Mānoa ranks 182 out of 300 U.S. colleges and universities that made the list out of country’s more than 3,000 four-year institutes of higher education.

The rankings are scored on net price, net debt, alumni earnings, timely graduation, school quality and access for low-income students.

“Mānoa offers 99 bachelor’s degrees in more than 50 areas, with recognized programs in earth and marine sciences and business,” the magazine said. It also recognized the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources as “one of the few agricultural colleges in the country that focus on agriculture” and the “unique Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology with laboratories in paleomagnetism and infrasound.”

UH Mānoa regularly receives national accolades for our academic and research excellence, but we are especially proud to be recognized as a ‘best value,’ particularly for low-income students, among all our nation’s colleges and universities,” said Interim Chancellor David Lassner. “With increasing concern about college affordability and student debt, this is powerful external validation that UH Mānoa students receive a great return on investment from higher education over their lifetimes.”

The magazine noted that, outside the classroom, students can explore 130 beaches around Oʻahu and added that UH Mānoa “truly embodies Hawaiʻi‘s spirit of aloha.”
