Seton Hill University was named a Best Value Regional College in the North Region in the 2014 edition of America’s Best Colleges by U.S. News & World Report. The exclusive rankings are available online here.

Seton Hill earned the No. 6 spot for Best Value among all Regional Colleges in the North for providing quality education at an affordable cost to families.

According to U.S. News & World Report, “Only schools in or near the top half of their U.S. News ranking categories are included because U.S. News considers the most significant values to be among colleges that perform well academically.”

For overall academic quality, Seton Hill was ranked No. 12 among Regional Colleges in the North. Regional colleges “focus almost entirely on the undergraduate experience and offer a broad range of programs in the liberal arts … and in field such as business, nursing and education,” according to U.S. News & World Report.

"Seton Hill is pleased to be recognized again by U.S. News & World Report for the University’s academic offerings of the highest quality. We remain committed to making a distinctive choice affordable to students who will serve the region. Our physician assistant, pre-med, teaching, entrepreneurial and mobile-tech savvy students leave Seton Hill well prepared and ready for graduate school or jobs,” Seton Hill Interim President Bibiana Boerio said.

The annual rankings, in which U.S. News classifies schools based on categories created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, provide an unmatched resource for parents and students contemplating one of life’s most challenging decisions. The annual U.S. News & World Report rankings represent the most comprehensive look at how schools stack up based on a set of 16 indicators of excellence, and help consumers evaluate and compare data compiled from nearly 1,400 accredited four-year schools.
