Only schools ranked in the top half of the 2020 Best Colleges ranking categories — national universities, national liberal arts colleges, regional colleges and regional universities — were considered for the Best Value Schools lists.

Also of note:

  • C-SC ranked No. 14 among regional colleges in the Midwest in top performers on social mobility.
