Webb Institute Named a Best Value College for 2022 by The Princeton Review


Webb Institute is one of the nation’s best colleges for students seeking a great education with excellent career preparation and at a relatively affordable price, according to The Princeton Review®.

The education services company named Webb Institute as one of its Best Value Colleges for 2022 on April 26. The full list of The Princeton Review’s Best Value Colleges for 2022 and the project’s seven categories of ranking lists, as well as the company’s profiles of the schools, is accessible for free with registration at https://www.princetonreview.com/college-rankings/best-value-colleges/.

The Princeton Review chose 209 schools for the 2022 list based on data from its surveys of administrators at more than 650 colleges in 2021-22. Topics covered everything from academics, cost, and financial aid to graduation rates, student debt.

The company also factored in data from its surveys of students attending the schools as well as data from PayScale.com’s surveys of alumni of the schools about their starting and mid-career salaries and job satisfaction. 

In all, The Princeton Review crunched more than 40 data points to tally ROI (Return on Investment) ratings of the colleges that were the bases for the Best Value Colleges school selections.

“The schools we chose as our Best Value Colleges for 2022 are a select group: they comprise only about 7% of the nation’s four-year undergraduate institutions,” said Rob Franek, editor-in-chief of The Princeton Review. “We commend their administrators, faculties, staff, and alumni for all they are doing to educate their students and guide them to success in their careers. These colleges are also exceptional for the generous amount of financial aid they award to students with need and/or for their comparatively low cost of attendance.”

The Princeton Review does not rank the Best Value Colleges hierarchically on a single list, from 1 to 209.

The Princeton Review is also known for its other college rankings in dozens of categories, many of which are reported in its annual book, The Best Colleges, published in August.
