A new survey finds SUNY Cortland is one of the most cost-effective colleges in the nation.
The 2016 Educate to Career (ETC) College Rankings Index compares the success of graduates in the workplace against the cost of their education.
SUNY Cortland was ranked 53rd out of nearly 1,200 four-year colleges across the United States.
Earlier this year, Consumers Digest named SUNY Cortland one of the nation’s 50 “best values” among public colleges and universities.
Factors used in the ETC rankings included net tuition cost, the percentage of graduates employed in occupations related to their field of study and an average salary of recent graduates.
SUNY Cortland ranked third among SUNY schools, behind SUNY Geneseo and the College at Brockport. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill topped the rankings.
