College Consensus

College Consensus, a unique college rating website that aggregates publisher rankings and student reviews, has published their ranking of the Best Value Colleges and Universities for 2022 at

When it comes to college, affordability isn’t cheap – keeping costs down and student loan debt low is every student’s worry. That’s why College Consensus indicates it ranked the best value colleges and universities for 2022--and SUNY Poly made the top 50!

College Consensus reports, "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. With our 2022 Consensus Ranking of the 100 Best Value Colleges & Universities, College Consensus is lighting up the way to a college education students can actually afford. With student debt representing the second-largest consumer debt class (after mortgages), earning a college degree without setting yourself up for a life of loan repayment – which never goes away, not even in bankruptcy – has turned into the Holy Grail: much sought, found by only a lucky few.

"College Consensus rankings combine the results of the most respected college ranking systems with the averaged ratings of thousands of real student reviews from around the web to create a unique college meta-ranking. This approach offers a comprehensive and holistic perspective missing from other college rankings.
