Arizona State University was named a Best Value College for 2021 by The Princeton Review. ASU is among 200 school profiles featured and selected out of more than 650 institutions that were considered for the ranking.

The Princeton Review considered more than 40 data points to tally the return on investment ratings of the colleges to determine its school selection. Topics included academics, cost, financial aid, graduation rates, student debt, and career and salary data.

It notes that the schools chosen are the most exceptional in the nation at delivering great academics, affordable cost and great career foundations.

ASU has been at the forefront of providing affordable and accessible quality education, welcoming its largest student community to date when, nationally, college enrollment was declining.

Historically, the university has maintained a model that ensures students have limited financial barriers to attend the university and have access to the maximum amount of financial aid available. And despite recent challenges, the university is committed to providing a quality academic experience, available to all students regardless of their geographical location, to ensure they remain on track to graduation.

Beyond graduation, 89% of undergraduate students start their own business or receive at least one job offer within six months of graduation.

The Princeton Review is also widely known for its college rankings in dozens of other categories which the university is also a part of such as Best 386 Colleges and Best Business School lists.
