Waynesburg’s Criminal Justice and Nursing Programs were also identified as a “Best Value.”

“We are proud to be consistently recognized on a national level as best value school,” said President Douglas G. Lee. “It is a priority of ours to ensure an affordable Christian higher education is possible for our students in an increasingly competitive market.”

The ranking, published by USA Today, places Waynesburg 155th out of the more than 1,300 schools on the list. The University also ranked in the top 10 percent of schools in Pennsylvania for value.

Both Waynesburg’s Criminal Justice and Nursing Programs ranked in the top 5 percent nationwide.

College Factual ranks schools for best value by estimating the actual average cost for an undergraduate degree, using the quality results from the best colleges ranking and personalized factors, such as location, cost and financial aid.

Recently, Waynesburg University was named to MONEY Magazine’s 2017-2018 “Best Colleges For Your Money” list. Additionally, 98 percent of 2015 graduates have been reported working full time or studying in their chosen field within one year of graduation.

Founded in 1849 by the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Waynesburg University is located on a traditional campus in the hills of southwestern Pennsylvania, with three additional sites located in the Pittsburgh region. The University is one of only 21 Bonner Scholar schools in the country, offering local, regional and international opportunities to touch the lives of others through service.
