Youngstown State University nationally ranked for affordability

Most-Affordable-Colleges-Universities-768x689.pngYoungstown State University ranks 7th in the nation in a recent list of the 100 Most Affordable Colleges and Universities.

The list was developed by College Consensus, an independent online resource dedicated to helping students find the right college. College Consensus combines the results of all of the most reputable college ranking publishers and thousands of real student reviews from around the web to provide an accurate and comprehensive ranking of a school's reputation and quality.

“In the age of rapidly rising tuition – college costs have risen far faster than the rate of inflation in the 21st century, and even faster than financial aid – affordability is no joke,” notes College Consensus.

The College Consensus ranking reflects YSU’s ongoing efforts to help curb the rising costs of higher education. In December, the university announced the Penguin Tuition Promise which provides all first-time undergraduate students the certainty that tuition will remain the same for four years as they pursue their degrees.
