Washington Monthly Recognizes Concord University For Affordability

ATHENS, W.Va. – Concord University has been recognized as one of the nation’s best schools for affordability by Washington Monthly. Concord is ranked #65 among the 267 institutions on the publication’s 2019 Best Bang for the Buck Rankings: Southeast.

According to the Washington Monthly website this is an “exclusive list of schools ranked according to how well they help non-wealthy students attain marketable degrees at affordable prices.”

Concord’s ranking is the highest among the public West Virginia colleges and universities named in the report. Washington Monthly compiled the list “by isolating the social mobility metrics from the main rankings of four-year institutions” the publication’s website states.

“These rankings are based on social mobility, research, and community and national service. In addition, Concord University continues to work very hard to make the college experience both affordable and relevant. What this really points to is the dedication of our faculty and staff to our students’ future success and the benefit of an investment in a Concord education. A Concord degree will help you succeed.”

William Allen, Vice President of Enrollment Management
