Waynesburg University was once again named a Best Value School among both private and public universities in the northern United States by U.S. News & World Report for 2023. 

This marks Waynesburg’s fifth consecutive year on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Value Regional Universities North list, which recognizes schools for their high-quality academic programs combined with low costs. 

We take seriously our ability to consistently offer a private, Christian education that is affordable and accessible." 

Waynesburg University President Douglas G. Lee

“We are proud that Waynesburg University continues to be recognized nationally for its value and outcomes,” said Waynesburg University President Douglas G. Lee. “We take seriously our ability to consistently offer a private, Christian education that is affordable and accessible." 

Waynesburg ranked No. 3 among the 14 Pennsylvania schools listed. Seventy-eight schools in total across Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont earned the best value ranking. 

The U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 Best Value Schools Ranking examined the following four variables: ratio of quality to price; need-based aid; percentage of need-based aid recipients awarded scholarships or grants; and the percentage of a school’s total costs for 2021-22 covered by the average need-based scholarships or grants to undergraduates. 

Tuition, room and board at Waynesburg is now more than $13,000 below the national average for private, non-profit, four-year colleges, and more than 90 percent of Waynesburg students receive some form of financial aid each year. 

Waynesburg was also included on U.S. News & World Report’s Best Regional Universities North list, as well as the Top Performers on Social Mobility Regional Universities North list.
